Situation

Most of the children at our project do not have access to safe drinking water; the only alternative is to drink dirty, dangerous water, which frequently makes them ill. During the rainy Guatemalan summer of 2008, our children were becoming increasingly sick from the contaminated water that they were drinking rendering them too ill to attend school and in some cases hospitalized with diseases such as Typhoid

Solution

Distributing water filters to each family. We found a company who can provide the Ecofiltro that are easy to use, durable and relatively cheap. This piece of equipment is vital as it ensures they have a constant supply of clean drinking water.
