In September, Water Project volunteers were able to assemble and distribute 216 SAM3 household filters in areas of the Jarama sector, including Kirusambu village, Uruhuha village, Twizerane village, and Kamapfizi village.
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.
