The collaboration is part of a long term agreement between Brúarfoss and On Guard for Humanity, reports.

The quantity of water is equal to the minimum daily requirement of 5,000 people.

As reported in August, the purchase of the Icelandic water by the charity will be funded with donations from individuals, private companies and public institutions in Canada. Carbon trading with the countries to which the water will be transported will also be funded.
