303 SAM3 Household Filters DistributedReported by Rebero Jean d'Amour, Story written by Amanda Mulder
In September, Water Project volunteers distributed 303 SAM3 Household Filters in the Rukumberi sector.
In addition, volunteers conducted 118 home visits to check on filters and ensure they were functioning properly.
SAM3 (Sand And Membrane) filters are placed in households for a family and their neighbors. They meet WHO's standards and requires no electricity to function, making it ideal for rural communities. Each family receives extensive training and ongoing volnteer support to maintain the filter for it's 10-year-plus lifespan.
