Fogcatchers like these on the outskirts of Lima, Peru are supplementing  the local communities’ water supply. In a climate that gets less than 40  millimeters of rain a year, the 4 by 8 meter fogcatchers can collect  hundreds of liters of water a night in underground storage containers.   German NGO Alimón e.v. has been working with these impoverished  neighborhoods, most of which don’t have running water nor the money to  pay for water that’s trucked up to the slums.
