54 Household Filters distributed in KagogoReported by Consolée UWIMANA, Story written by Margaret Coolman
Water project volunteers distributed 54 SAM 3 filters to families in the Kagogo sector. 216 people are expected to directly benefit from this distribution, and each filter will be shared with two neighboring families.
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.
