First SAM3 Household Filters Distributed in RukumberiReported by Rebero Jean d'Amour, Story written by Amanda Mulder
In the month of September 2020, Water Project volunteers from Rukumberi were able to start to distributing SAM3 household filters and reached 67 households with filters. Before COVID-19, volunteers were trained on sifting and washing sand and hygiene promotion as well as theory of filters assembling. They could practice filters assembling, use and maintenance of water filters during lockdown. But it wasn't until recently that they were able to actually distribute any filters. Volunteers also trained filters beneficiaries on filter use and maintenance as well as hygiene promotion.
