The Jompy is designed and patented by David Osborne in Troon, Scotland. It has been very successfully tried and tested in Africa and India.
The Jompy is a highly effective water boiler that allows the consumer to carry out two tasks at the same time: boiling water whilst cooking.This unique product (weighing just 600g) can boil 1 litre of water every 45-60 seconds with the water reaching temperatures of up to 86 degrees, drastically reducing the amount of fuel required; as well as providing a means of clean hot water to improve sanitation.
“It is a tragedy that diarrhoea, which is little more than an inconvenience in the developed world, kills an estimated 1. 5 million children each year,”
said UNICEF Executive Director, Ann M. Veneman
3 children die each and every minute because of water-related diseases.
The W.H.O. states that there is a world health crisis, and state that 1.1 billion people do not have access to clean water. This equates to 5 million deaths every year from water-related diseases of which diarrhoea is the biggest killer.”
