PurePal / Water purifier


People in some parts of the world still have limited access to clean drinking water especially, the drought victims. They haven’t had any water filter to make groundwater clean enough to consume. So, they have no choice but using groundwater (which may be contaminated and effects their health negatively) in their daily lives.

The project aims to bring clean water at the door of drought victims by using this manual handy water purifier. At the bottom of the filter, there is a screw cap allowing the user to screw a water bottle directly to the filter.
