SAM2 Community Filter for Health CenterReported by Chip Kragt, Story written by Amanda Mulder
Water Project volunteers were able to install a SAM2 Community Filter at the Rukumberi Health Center in June 2020. This filter will serve staff and patients at the center, as well as members of the surrounding community.
SAM2 (Sand And Membrane) filters are large capacity solutions with a 10-year-plus lifespan. A SAM2 requires no electricity or fuel and has no moving parts, making it the ideal solution for rural areas. Schools and Health Clinics are trained how to use and maintain the filter, empowering them to be self-sufficient and address their own needs.
