The first people to help are the local community. They will help people until the international community is able to get involved. Therefore, we should not forget the local communities and what they need, first of all, their daily needs. They need food, clean water, blankets, etc. Of course, they need education for their children. For example, in Uganda, there are 1.4 million refugees, and 150 children in the same class. <...> What will they learn, what will be the result of it? — Valentin Tapsoba, Regional Director of the Southern African Bureau, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
I would like to propose the following format of cooperation in Africa for charitable foundations from all over the world. <...> Jobs should be created in those African countries where there is a need for them. And the charitable foundations that help African countries, should invest part of the money in production, and, first of all, Russian technology could be helpful here — Rasul Botashev, Member of the Committee of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation on International Affairs.
Our technology makes it possible to get water from the largest source without harming the environment. We can get 30–5000 litres of water per day from the air outside. <...> Our equipment is already in operation on four continents, including Africa, in such countries as Sierra Leone, Kenya, and some others — Andrey Martirosov, Member of the Board, WaterGen Russia.
