Volunteers Visit Recipient Families in MwogoReported by Rebero Jean d'Amour, Story written by Amanda Mulder
During the month of December 2019, Water Project volunteers visited 80 families in the Mwogo sector with SAM3 Household Filters. During these visits, volunteers worked with families to backwash and maintain filters, answered family questions about the systems, and reinforced health and hygiene lessons for the family members.
No major issues were found during these visits.
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.
