Community Filter Installed at Primary School RubonaReported by Rebero Jean d'Amour, Story written by Amanda Mulder
In April, a SAM2 Community Filter was installed at the Primary School Rubona. Our volunteers spoke with Eric, the head teacher at the school, who told us, "It is very important to have a water filter at this school. Before getting this SAM2 Filter, we used to drink dirty water from Akagera swamp, rain water, or from Sake and Birira Lakes. That dirty water was the cause of different diseases. This SAM2 will help school pupils and teachers, as well as people surrounding the school to have clean drinking water. People can also bring clean water to home to use for domestic purposes. I thank the Water Project for giving us this filter which will help to solve problems related to lake of clean water."
