Volunteers Visit 43 Recipient Families in RilimaReported by Rebero Jean d'Amour, Story written by Amanda Mulder
In November 2019, Water Project volunteers visited 43 recipient families in Rilima to check filters and help families with routine maintenance. During their visits, they did not identify any concerns from the families they visited.
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.
