Clean Water: The Solution
Access to clean, safe water is a catalyst for change and the first step to elevating communities from a cycle of sickness and poverty to one of health and hope.
No more digging wells, no constructing sand filters, and no more purification chemicals if there is a water source. With the filter, no one has to boil their water to make it safe ever again.
The gravity-operated filter and fast flow rate mean that anyone anywhere can have clean water in a matter of seconds. Just 4-inches long and less than 8 ounces, the filter can deliver 20 liters (5 gallons) of clean water in about 30 minutes.
The high flow rate eliminates the need to store water, which reduces the chances of water being contaminated after it is filtered. The only external force required for the system to function is gravity.
Our filters are designed after the technology used in kidney dialysis. The hollow fiber membranes deliver 0.1 absolute micron biological filtration, removing 7 log (99.99999%) of all bacteria like Salmonella, E. coli, Vibrio cholerae, and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid); and all protozoa such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium.
The filter is provided with everything they need to turn any water source into clean, safe drinking water for their families.
Just One Africa is addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goal #6 (SDG6) “Ensure access to water and sanitation for all.” We are seeing remarkable improvements in every community we work in. Read more about how we are addressing other Sustainable Development Goals.
