CARACOL TV FEATURES SAFE WATER PROGRAM

Original Spanish version  

 Translated English version


The Safe Water for Families Program provides BioSand filters to rural families living in village communities in collaboration with Canadian and Colombian Rotary Clubs. The families receiving filters have no piped water and use rain water or water from swamps as their water source. At least 50% of acute diarrhea is caused by contaminated water, so the filter enables families to experience a significant improvement in health.

SAFE WATER FOR FAMILIES PROGRAM

The Safe Water Program has provided 2500 families with filters in Cordoba, Santander, and La Guajira. We thank the Rotary Clubs in these regions for their enthusiastic and continuing dedication to the program.  

The cost of a filter is $100. This cost includes community training in filter maintenance and in hygiene, and follow-up visits.
