January Distributions Delayed COVID-19 PrecautionsReported by Rebero Jean d'Amour, Story written by Amanda Mulder
In January, it was not possible to distribute filters because of COVID-19 prevention measures put in place in response to a surge in cases. However, volunteers were able to continue preparing sand and assembling filters so that when precautions are lifted, distributions can continue.
In addition, Water Project volunteers visited 275 families to check on the functionality of SAM3 Household Filters and visited 10 SAM2 Community Filters and 14 Rain Water Harvest Systems. All but one system were found in functioning order. The SAM2 at Health Post Mugorore was repaired by a Water Project Technician.
