Project: Biosand and Ceramic Water Filters
Objective: To provide clean water to families in Chermaitre
Cost: $ 44,130
Status: Ongoing, funding needed
Whether they get drinking water from the schoolyard faucet or a stream, people in Chermaitre do not have access to clean water. The lack of clean water puts people in Chermaitre at risk of waterborne diseases. This risk can be reduced by placing biosand water filters at the schoolyard faucet and distributing ceramic filters to Chermaitre families. VHP has reached out to Pure Water for the World, an organization which can provide these filters and hygiene training to people in Chermaitre. Providing clean water is incredibly important for the health of people in Chermaitre.
