Gifts with a Difference: Bio-sand Water Filters

Meet Susan Nankya, A Rocha Uganda’s Community Conservation Programme Officer. In this video, Susan shares with us the challenges faced by communities that do not have access to clean, safe drinking water.

Children die every day from preventable diseases caused by contaminated water and improper sanitation and hygiene. You can help provide the gift of clean water today by purchasing a bio-sand water filter for a family in need. These filters remove up to 99% of pathogens and parasites without the need for chemical treatment or boiling, reducing water-borne diseases. The reduced charcoal use also means that families have more money to spend on other essentials and, with fewer trees needing to be cut down, habitats are protected.
