Basics

- A very basic/rudimentary sink used in developing/post disaster areas to allow for hand washing

- Works by a swing like assembly with water containers hanging from it. A foot pedal connected to a string slightly tips the container when pressed causing water to flow.

- Is a very accesible way to bring hand washing to developing/post disaster areas, and in doing so increase hygine while reducing disease
