This is a self-evident process for all our friends. Many people do rarely think about how others have to prepare their water so they can drink it without getting sick.
1. collect the rain water or walk to the nearest river
2. search for firewood
3. heat the “oven”
4. boil the water (at least 20 minutes, so most bacteria get killed)
5. make sure that the fire doesn’t go out during the time (which is often a difficult act during the rainy season)
6. boil, boil, boil.. so there is always enough water to drink and to prepare food
What kind of time and effort this is for a 45-strong children’s home, you can easily calculate.
That is why we try to equip as many families and children’s homes as possible with a biosand filter.
Fill in dirty water above …. 80 liters of drinking water per day runs out!
That sounds more like our water tap principle, right? 😉
And that the filter runs over 10 years and kills over 99% of all bacteria is simply terrific!
