The RoL50 atmospheric water generator was successfully presented at the 1st Scientific, Technological and Innovation Expofair Falcón 2023.

Rain of Life is proud to have participated in the I Expoferia Científica, Tecnológica y de Innovación Falcón 2023, held recently in the Falcón state of Venezuela. This event aimed to promote scientific and technological development in the region.

Numerous projects developed for the energy, industrial, agri-food, petrochemical, water, manufacturing, construction, health and biotechnology sectors were presented at the fair, with the aim of promoting scientific, technological and innovation projects to promote regional and national development.

Our objective was to present the operation of atmospheric generators and the efficient production of quality drinking water from condensation cycles of humidity and rainwater.

We had the opportunity to present to different audiences how Rain of Life offers solutions to the supply of quality drinking water with modular technologies (from 50 to 10,000 litres per day), a real alternative to bottled water, with lower economic cost, more environmentally friendly and avoiding having to buy and carry heavy bottles every day. At the Expoferia we were able to show live the operation of the RoL50 atmospheric water generator, which produces 50 litres of drinking water per day, enough to serve a family unit or a small or medium-sized business, as it produces quality drinking water for a staff of around 25-50 people.

Our equipment, adaptable to any terrain or space, can be powered by electricity or solar energy. In addition, they ensure that anyone can have quick access to quality drinking water. It is a solution that adapts to the needs of any home, business, hotel, health centre, school, university or hospital, etc. Moreover, in places where there is considerable relative humidity and temperature, it is more efficient and cost-effective than other methods of obtaining and purifying water.

At the I Expoferia Científica, Tecnológica y de Innovación Falcón 2023, we were also able to interact with other participants and visitors, exchanging ideas and experiences on scientific and technological development in Venezuela and the region. This opportunity allowed us to expand our network of contacts and establish new collaborations with other companies and organisations.

The event was attended by important positions within the organisational structure of Rain of Life such as Alerit Lugo, Vice President of the Company.

We are honoured to have been part of this important initiative for scientific and technological development in Falcón and Venezuela in general. We look forward to continue working and collaborating with other companies and organisations to continue fostering innovation and progress in the region.

World Water Day Commitments and Actions

Events related to World Water Day 2023 in the activities carried out by major international organisations have revolved around the UN Water Conference. The event in New York brought together heads of state and government, ministers and stakeholders from all sectors to achieve internationally agreed goals, including Sustainable Development Goal 6 of the UN 2030 Agenda for a Fairer Future; ensuring access to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene for all. The events have laid the groundwork for an action plan with nearly 700 commitments to protect “humanity’s most precious global common good”.

Water will be at the centre of the World Political Agenda

During the conference proceedings, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres stressed the need to put water at the centre of the global political agenda: “Our hopes depend on innovative and action-oriented commitments to make water and sanitation available to all the world’s people in a safe and sustainable way,” he said at the closing event.

The commitments made during the events cover a wide range of actions, explained Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs Li Junhua, “from capacity building to data and monitoring systems to improving the resilience of infrastructure.

Progress from this conference will be reviewed during high-level political meetings in July 2023, and is expected to feature prominently at the Sustainable Development Goals Summit in September.

UNESCO’s role in the democratisation of water

In her official message on World Water Day, UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay stressed the urgency of “working to ensure access to water and sanitation for all people, all the more urgent as the consequences of climate change are already being felt and threaten to exacerbate droughts and water scarcity, as well as the magnitude and frequency of floods”.

In her speech, Azoulay also highlighted that the UN World Water Development Report, coordinated by UNESCO focuses this year on the need for international cooperation in adopting a multidisciplinary approach to the problem, combining different perspectives and actions. One of these would be the inclusion of women and indigenous communities in the sustainable management of water resources.

He also recalled that water, whose cycle is planetary, defies human boundaries and it is therefore imperative to treat water as a vital and common good of humanity.

OMS and the need for international leadership

For his part, the Director-General of the World Health Organisation in his opening address on 23 March 2023 emphasised the right to health, closely linked to those included in SDG6, clean water and sanitation. He highlighted in his speech the call for “stronger government leadership to drive change; increased resources and financing; investment in people and institutions; better data and evidence to guide decisions; and innovation and experimentation”.

Accelerating change: a slogan with a legendary history

The theme of this World Water Day 2023, “Accelerating Change” takes its inspiration from an ancient Quechua fable in which a hummingbird carries drops of water to extinguish a great fire while the rest of the animals flee in terror.

“One day a fire broke out in the forest

and all the animals fled in terror.

But after they had reached safety, they stood staring at the flames in terror and sadness.

Above their heads, a hummingbird flew back and forth from the fire, again and again.

The larger animals asked the hummingbird what it was doing.

-I’m flying to the lake to get water to help put out the flames.

The animals laughed and exclaimed:

-You can’t put out the fire by yourself!

-True,” replied the hummingbird, “but I am doing my bit.

The moral of this story is clear: every action we take, no matter how small, will contribute to solving the water crisis.

The website developed by the UN Water Division (https://www.unwater.org/bethechange/es ) reflects this beautiful story and invites you to make a list of actions as part of your individual commitment to solve the water and sanitation crisis, such as

Saving water

Consume local products

Protect nature

Dispose of waste safely

On 22 March, World Water Day, the need to accelerate changes in the water agenda will be discussed.

World Water Day is celebrated every year on 22 March, a date that reminds us of the importance of this natural resource and the need to protect and preserve it in order to guarantee life on our planet.

Water is an essential element for the life of all living beings, from plants to animals and humans. However, despite its importance, many people are still unaware of the scarcity of water in some parts of the world and the need to care for and protect this resource.

World Water Day has been celebrated since 1993, when the United Nations General Assembly declared 22 March as the day to draw attention to the importance of freshwater and the need for its sustainable management. Since then, each year a specific theme has been chosen for the celebration, with the aim of raising awareness of a specific water-related issue.

Accelerating Change, slogan selected for 2023

This year, the theme chosen for World Water Day is “Accelerating Change”. A slogan that is in line with the urgent need to move faster in the actions to be taken to solve the world’s drinking water problem. The latest data shows that governments need to work on average four times faster to meet SDG 6 (clean water and sanitation) on time, but this is not a situation that can be solved by just one actor or group.

World Water Day also works to highlight the fact that water is not only a necessary resource for survival, but is also essential for economic and social development. From agriculture to industry and tourism, water is a vital resource for most human activities.

One of the greatest challenges we face in relation to water is its scarcity in many parts of the world. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), more than 2.2 billion people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation. Moreover, by 2025, half of the world’s population is expected to live in water-scarce areas.

This is a problem that affects many developing countries, where the difficulty of access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation has serious consequences for the health and well-being of the population. However, it is also a situation of concern for developed countries, where over-consumption and contamination of aquifers are major problems.

The importance of working to protect water

To meet these challenges, it is essential that all entities work together to protect and conserve water. This implies sustainable water management, which allows water to be used equitably and efficiently, as well as the protection of aquatic ecosystems and the prevention of water pollution.

In addition to sustainable water management, it is also important that we learn to value water and use it responsibly in our daily lives. This means adopting sustainable habits to reduce our water footprint.

How can we improve our water footprint?

To improve our water footprint and contribute to water conservation, there are several actions we can take in our daily lives:

1.- Reduce water consumption: We can reduce our water consumption by adopting sustainable habits, such as turning off the tap while brushing our teeth, using a front-loading washing machine instead of a top-loading one, and taking shorter showers.

2.- Use water wisely: We can use water wisely in our homes, for example by collecting rainwater to water plants.

3.- Buy sustainable products: We should opt for products that have been manufactured using sustainable processes and have a reduced water footprint. For example, choose food produced locally and using sustainable agricultural practices.

4.- Avoid food waste: Reducing food waste also helps to reduce the water footprint, as large amounts of water are needed to produce food.

5.- Avoiding water pollution: We should avoid water pollution by preventing the dumping of chemicals, plastics and other toxic materials into rivers and lakes.

6.- Saving water in the garden: We can save water in the garden by installing efficient irrigation systems and choosing plants that require less water.

7.- Participate in water conservation initiatives: We can participate in water conservation initiatives, such as cleaning up beaches and rivers, or reforesting watersheds.

8.- Raise awareness: It is important to share the importance of water conservation with friends and family, to raise awareness and motivate others to take action to reduce their water footprint.

In short, we can all contribute to water conservation and reduce our water footprint by adopting sustainable habits in our daily lives. It is important that we take action to protect and preserve this vital resource to ensure its availability for future generations.

Rain of Life and its contribution to better water management

During the past year, Rain of Life has stood out in this task of contributing to the better management and supply of quality drinking water with the installation of equipment in various parts of countries such as Venezuela, Costa Rica, Cuba and the Dominican Republic, among others.

In addition, for example, it has participated in special actions such as the installation of several atmospheric RoL50 water generators to supply Venezuelan soldiers deployed in Paraguaná. The equipment installed facilitated access to quality drinking water for all military and civilian personnel deployed there during activities.

The company also participated in various fairs and events of international interest, such as Exphore Costa Rica and the Havana International Fair, FIHAV. The first event, aimed at the world of food catering, with an influx of more than 4,000 people, where Rain of Life had the opportunity to present in person the operation of its atmospheric water generators, as well as to show directly what they can do for each of the sectors that gathered at the Convention Center of Costa Rica. At the International Fair in Havana, in addition to showing the possibilities of the Rain of Life technology to all the participants, it received the Gold Medal for the quality and rationality of the project.

Success stories: Egidio Montesinos Hospital is supplied with 1,000 liters of drinking water per day with a RoL1,000 atmospheric generator.

Since June 2022, the Egidio Montesinos Hospital, in Barquisimeto (Venezuela), has a RoL1,000 Atmospheric Water Generator in its facilities.

The equipment has remained operational ever since, supplying the institution with quality drinking water.

Dr. Juana ArroyoThe Director of the health institution confirmed a few days ago her absolute satisfaction with the operation of the equipment: “several units of the hospital and the kitchen itself benefit from more than 50 bottles a day (about 1,000 liters a day), which is a great step forward for the center, since quality water is a fundamental element for us”.

The Ambassador of Spain in Venezuela, Mr. Ramón Santos, hands over the RoL1,000 atmospheric generator to the Egidio Montesinos Hospital, in the presence of Dr. Juana Arroyo and the Director of Rain of Life Venezuela, Mr. Simón Díaz.

Water for hospitals

The National Hospital Survey published on November 15, 2022 by the NGO Doctors for Health revealed that 2 out of 3 health centers in Venezuela do not have a constant supply of water. This leads to the proliferation of bacteria and germs that affect the health of patients, putting the operation of medical centers at serious risk.

Rain of Life, the solution to the lack of quality drinking water

Rain of Life offers solutions for the supply of quality drinking water with modular technologies (from 50 to 10,000 liters per day), a real alternative to bottled water, with lower economic cost, more environmentally friendly and without having to buy and carry heavy bottles every day. They are adaptable to any terrain or space, can be electrically or solar powered and ensure that anyone can have quick access to quality drinking water.

It is a solution that adapts to the needs of any home, business, hotel, health center, school, university or hospital, such as the Egidio Montesinos Hospital. And in places where there is considerable relative humidity and temperature, it is more efficient and cost-effective than other methods of obtaining and purifying water. And, in addition, much healthier.

Rain of Life at the Exphore Costa Rica trade show

In our continuous effort to show the qualities and benefits of Rain of Life Atmospheric Water Generators, we recently participated in the Exphore Costa Rica fair, an event aimed at the hospitality world, mainly hotels and restaurants, but also attended by professionals from the supermarket sector, the food industry, caterings… More than 4,000 people, mainly industry professionals, attended this event encouraged by the interest in the new products and services that the more than 200 exhibitors had to offer to their businesses.

The fair was held in San José on October 25, 26 and 27 and Rain of Life did not hesitate to confirm our participation.

For restaurants and hotels, having an abundant supply of quality drinking water is essential. They usually have a large number of users among their guests or diners and the staff itself, and drinking water is one of the most important resources to offer an excellent service to their customers.

Our objective at this fair was very clear: to show in person how our atmospheric water generators work, as well as to show directly what they can do for each of the sectors that gathered at the Costa Rica Convention Center.

One of our equipment, specifically the RoL50, was installed at the exhibition to demonstrate its ease of operation and dimensions. In addition, trade fair attendees were able to see how our atmospheric water generators extract high-quality drinking water from the humidity in the air.

During the two days of the fair, the Rain of Life team in Costa Rica was able to present our equipment to hospitality professionals, as well as recommend the one that best suits their business. Each machine offers different delivery capacities, from the 50 liters of the RoL50 to the 10,000 liters per day of the largest machine, the RoL10,000.
It was a pleasure to share these days where networking and the discovery of new products and services to improve the efficiency of a sector as important as this one were the protagonists, in addition to demonstrating that a responsible and environmentally friendly water consumption is possible.

Likewise, it was possible to demonstrate that quality and sustainability are compatible thanks to the solar kits that we have designed for each atmospheric generator. In this way we take advantage of and reuse nature’s resources, thus reducing our carbon footprint and also saving on our electricity bill, which is always appreciated by the sectors visiting the fair.
It only remains for us to thank Exphore Costa Rica and all the attendees who came to this fair for the great reception of our stand and the interest shown by all those who passed by it in the possibility of obtaining an autonomous and economical supply of drinking water of a higher quality than most bottled water on the market.

And of course, from Rain of Life we would like to give special thanks to the Rain of Life Distributors in Costa Rica, Mr. Rubén Ruibal and Mr. Rubén Dorta for the excellent work done in Exphore, with whom all the people and professionals in Costa Rica can contact for any further information they may need.

The danger of food bacteria in summer

Food bacteria are to blame for a large number of illnesses caused by eating spoiled or contaminated food. This risk is especially aggravated with the arrival of heat. High temperatures contribute to the proliferation of microorganisms in food that can have very negative consequences. In this regard, the WHO, on the occasion of World Health Day on April 7, sought to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining correct and adequate hygiene at all stages that are part of the food chain.

Drought: a global problem that urgently needs attention

In Spain we are facing one of the three driest hydrological years since 1961. Our crops suffer the vicissitudes of the lack of water while we look at the sky and watch the news hoping that, as soon as possible, the weather will give us a respite to recover the water from our reservoirs. “There is a drought” is what we hear when talking about this worrying issue. But do we really know what kind of drought we are facing?

Types of drought

Drought can be defined, in a general way, as a natural condition that occurs in a certain region, in the absence of rainy periods, or when they are very short. This causes a major impact on the habitat and climatic conditions of the environment, even becoming incompatible with life.

But there is a wide variety of types of drought:

Meteorological drought: it is generated when there is a continuous lack of rainfall. It originates due to a global behavior of the atmospheric system, which is influenced by both natural factors and those caused by human action, for example, deforestation or the increase in greenhouse gases. This type of drought is linked to a specific region where these meteorological circumstances occur.

Hydrological drought: It is the decrease in the availability of surface and/or groundwater in a given area during a given time period, compared to historical values. This hydrological drought can cause the complete dissatisfaction of the demand for water.

Agricultural drought: It is the lack of moisture to meet the needs of a crop in a given place and time. In rainfed crops it is linked to meteorological drought, while in irrigated crops it is more linked to hydrological drought.

Socioeconomic drought: it is the effect of water scarcity on people and economic activity as a result of any of the types of drought.

Causes of the lack of water problem

Although we clearly understand drought as a phenomenon associated with climate change and global warming, the truth is that it is convenient to identify cycles of meteorological drought with recent phenomena. Thus, the current situation of drought that we are suffering in our country and in other areas of the planet seems to be clearly related to the La Niña phenomenon , an anomalous cooling of the waters of the Pacific Ocean. It is the conclusion reached by experts such as Juan Jesús González, physicist, researcher in atmospheric dynamics and spokesman for the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet). According to their own statements, the current period of drought that we are facing is the consequence of an anticyclonic blockade that causes a lack of sustained rains over time.

In addition, another clear indicator is the strong thermal oscillation that we have been experiencing at the end of winter. Thermal differences of more than 25ºC between maximum and minimum that have led us to live a “summer winter” in some parts of the country.

Other areas of the world are also suffering these consequences, even more noticeably than in Spain. Thus, the western United States, Latin America and Morocco are facing their worst dry season in the last 30 years.

Global warming, the ultimate culprit

But let’s not fool ourselves. Global warming is, without a doubt, the cause of these alterations in rainfall and in the thermal increase of the planet. This is a reality that the experts responsible for the IPCC (International Panel of Experts on Climate Change) underline in all their reports. They indicate that if the global levels of greenhouse gas emissions are maintained, the heat waves that hit our countries would become annual.

Much of the seagrass beds could disappear by the middle of this century, taking with them the rich biodiversity they harbor. We will also experience more fires, crop losses and agricultural land. And of course, access to clean drinking water globally will be drastically affected. This is because the increase in demand without the renewal of aquifers due to drought could deplete water reserves in the most populated areas of the planet.

These experts also indicate that the situation could not be so devastating if our consumption habits are drastically changed. Changes that lead to a significant reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases.
