The Clean Water Project

THE NEED

The area Eastern Samar covers a total of 4,661 square kilometers occupying the eastern section of Samar Island in the Eastern Visayas region. The province is bordered to the north by Northern Samar, west by Samar, east the Philippines Sea and to the south lies the Leyte Gulf. Eastern Samar suffers heavily from powerful typhoons because it faces the Philippine Sea of the Pacific Ocean.

Impact Nations Australia has targeted the area in the Philippines known as Eastern Samar to provide clean water to all the schools in this area, at no cost to the schools.

There are approximately 550 schools that currently have very poor drinking water and in most cases, the schools buy their drinking water for the children to purchase.

Impact Nations Australia saw the need in this area and have in association with the local Pastors developed a program to install Sawyer Water Filters in these areas.

 

 

THE EFFECT

These filters remove the following diseases:

  • Cholera
  • Botulism
  • Typhoid
  • Amoebic Dysentery
  • E. Coli
  • Coliform Bacteria
  • Streptococcus
  • Salmonella
  • Cryptosporidium
  • Cyclospora

 

 

TIMELINE

With the school’s project, it is anticipated that completion of the Clean Water project will take around three years and is dependent on your donations.

To help the local economy we purchase the blue containers in Borongan, each container is labeled with the ‘dirty bucket ‘and clean bucket’ sticker and on the ‘dirty bucket’ label are instructions on how to maintain the filter in good working order. This is done by giving the filter an ‘injection’ of clean water three times once a day from a syringe that is supplied. With this small amount of maintenance, the filter will last up to 20 years.
