Filters are an adaptation of slow-sand filtration, designed
for use at the household level. The filter removes water-borne
bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and other organisms that cause
diseases such as cholera, typhoid fever, and amoebic dysentery.
The filter also strains out the particles and organic matter
that cause cloudiness, unpleasant taste, colour, and odour.
Seen here Pastor Rodrigues,
trained by technicians at Clean
Water for Haiti, standing beside the first filter produced
in this small production plant. We are believing God now
that we have had a cement mixer donated that we can start
extending this good work.
