I have some great news for our Congo Orphans Trust supporters...
Our water filter project is going really well and we recently received a donation from American charity 'Friendly Water for the World' to make 10 bio-sand water filters to be given to 10 children's clinics in and around Beni.
This is such great news. By drinking clean water these children can stop suffering from water-borne illnesses such as cholera and can start living healthier and happier lives.
These really are such amazing filters and I have a great photo here to show you what a huge difference they make. Just take a look at the following photo and see the difference in the colour of the water that is going in and the water that is coming out! More importantly than that, the filter removes 99% of all water-borne pathogens making the water safe to drink.
The best news is that because we had already raised the money for the materials, after paying our team we had money left over to give to Rwese orphanage to pay for school fees for the children living there!
Thanks Friendly water for the world for your donation! Photos to follow...
