In 2014 Maliwatch partnered with Mrs Diarra T. Toure (purple traditional outfit) head of ODI-SAHEL NGO and donated hundreds of hydration pockets to the community of Bignaville, near Mopti in Mali.
Dirty water (from the Bani river, near Mopti) can turn into safe drinking water after diffusing through the white pocket via osmosis. Many Bignaville residents were able to enjoy some safe clean water thanks to the efforts of ODI-SAHEL and Maliwatch.
