The DRS project aims to provide affordable technical equipment for the immediate aid in case of a humanitarian catastrophe. Our systems consist of stackable, connectable and transportable containers for the purpose of filtering Water, generating Power, establishing emergency Communication and Clearing streets. The units are designed to be as generic as they are simple in use.
The world in which we live goes through constant changes. While some of these changes are desirable, others are disastrous. The rise in the world’s population and consumption has an adverse effect on our environment, leading to climate crises and therefore to many forms of natural disasters. On average, 60,000 people are killed by natural disasters every year. Even though disasters are not predictable, a lot of lives can be saved if humanitarian aid is intensified and given strategically. The usage of appropriate and reliable equipment is key in the provision of efficient relief services..
Our aim is to increase the efficiency of humanitarian aid by providing technical solutions which are reliable, portable and easy to use at a reasonable price. Our approach to accomplish this is the devleopment of state of the art products as they are demanded by relief organisations and through cost-oriented standardisation.
We are a team from diverse professional backgrounds who prioritise the well being of people and the safety of our environment. This desire propels us to operate beyond a purely profit-oriented model, adopting a more sustainable problem-oriented business model. It lies within the heart of our project to provide high quality and most affordable water purification equipment for victims of disasters, relief organisations and humanitarian agencies.
The biggest investment one can ever make is to invest in humans. As our contribution to disaster risks reduction, we are raising funds to build an air-droppable water filter unit, capable of serving 15,000 people in affected areas. We, hereby, use this avenue to solicit your financial support. Donating to this project will go far […]
On 19th November 2020, Disaster Relief Systems was awarded 2,000 Euros for the Best-Business-Idea competition during Leipzig Founders‘ Night Awards in Saxony-Germany. After a 90-second presentation, Our idea of building a mobile purification unit was decided by a panel and the larger audience as the best among the other six competitive business ideas. We regard […]
The most dreadful disasters are what often catch the attention of the media. However, a day hardly passes by without experiencing a form of disaster on our planet. Building global disaster resilience calls for a holistic understanding of all types of cataclysms and their rate of occurrence.
We are grateful for the confidence expressed in our business initiative. The Exist-scholarship reveals that building global resilience against disasters is also within the scope of the BMWi. A big thanks to all individuals and institutions whose support has resulted in this achievement: Leipzig University, Technische Universität Chemnitz, SEPT Leipzig University, SCHRÖDER DESIGN, Utz Dornberger, Sea-Eye e.V., Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund Deutschland, Susanne Ebitsch, T.U.C.
