Simple Water Purifier / Water and sanitation

Simple Water Purifier
Simple Water Purifier

Every year, 3 out of 10 people do not have access to safely managed drinking water services and every day, about 1000 children die of diarrheal diseases from drinking contaminated water. They contract diseases from the pathogens found in their unsafe drinking water. Though they may be aware of the risks, they are forced to drink from unsafe water sources as there is simply no alternative. ‘Simple Water Purifier’ will help improve water hygiene in affected communities by providing people with easy and safe access to inexpensive drinking water.
