Sponsering water filters

Water filters for 10,000 poor families in southern Laos

You can sponsor a family for 41 €
When clean water change lives – TerraClear

Benefits of the filter

  • made locally by TerraClear (a non-profit company) with clay and rice husk
  • efficient water treatment
  • mechanical filtration
  • light and transportable
  • advantageous – unit price: 46 € (of which 5€ paid by the family over 6 months and the rest subsidized by the project)

Impact

  • Health: reduction of water-related and respiratory diseases by half by reducing smoke in boil water homes.
  • Social: reduction of the effort required to obtain drinking water. Improves in particular the lives of children and women.
  • Financial: less expensive than other options (bottled water, boiling).
  • Environmental: 1 filter means a reduction of 1.4 tons of wood usually used by the household each year. The filter does not require any source of energy, thus favoring the conservation of the local forest.
