Water, Water Everywhere, But Not a Drop to Drink
Yes, there is a lot of water in the Amazon River basin, but it’s no longer safe to drink. CONAPAC has been providing clean water systems to our Adopt-A-School partners since 2008. However, not all communities in our program are large enough to need a permanent centrally located water treatment plant. This year, we’ve implemented a pilot program to test in these smaller communities using the Sawyer Filter System www.sawyersaves.com. This simple, affordable, easy-to-use, easy-to-clean, filter is based on kidney dialysis technology. We’re excited about the possibilities that the Sawyer Filter Systems might provide to the AAS families—and to our passionate donors, who see the benefit of combining access to both education and clean drinking water as a worthy endeavor.
