Help Raise Funds for H2O Salamander the 1st Philippine Made Amphibian Tricycle

H20 Salamander 2

Hello Sweeties!

The rainy season is upon us, finally after a very long very dry summer. But with the cool rains comes the floods waters. This sadly has become the new normal. Living in the lower part of the City of Antipolo Eastern Philippines, it has become difficult to navigate the area without rain boots and sometimes I wish for a boat to get home because I have to go through the flood waters of the other cities to get home.

I first set eyes on the H2O Salamander while watching the news.I thought it was the perfect little vehicle for the flood prone areas of the Philippines.

What is the H2O SALAMANDER?

It is an amphibious multi-utility vehicle ,  The H2O people described it as a tricycle type vehicle.  H2O Technologies, a cutting-edge Filipino innovation and technology company has developed the H2O Salamander. It is an amphibious multi-utility vehicle that can safely run on both land and water, yes even in flood waters. t’s a potential game changer in terms of responding to typhoon-related disasters and mitigating the effects of severe flooding, especially in highly urbanized areas. The vehicle can be utilize to ensure continuity to provide basic services needed by people in every flood prone barangays. The H2O Salamander can carry up to 6 passengers (driver included) and comes in electricity (ore environment friendly) and gasoline powered versions.

H2O Technologies is partnering with the single biggest non-government organization (NGO) that helps the Philippine government in dealing natural calamities like typhoons and massive flooding – the Philippine Red Cross. The Red Cross provides critical disaster management services to local government units (LGU) severely affected by natural calamities like floods through its disaster relief activities like rescue operations, among others. H2O is partnering with the Philippine Red Cross in helping local government units manage natural calamities better by donating 500 units of the H2O Salamander.
