Water source: Simu river
For three years, some residents of Kimuli have enjoyed drinking water from TivaWater filters. They express their love for how good their water tastes now. The village health center reports families with TivaWater filters in their homes are much healthier than families without one.
Here are two stories of families impacted by TivaWater filters:
Michael and Peter
"This water is very sweet!" Michael and his son Peter (right) use their TivaWater filter for everything: cooking, cleaning, washing, and drinking. Before they had their filter, they drank water straight from the river, which made them very sick and cause them to miss work and school. Now, they are much healthier and are able to lead better, more productive lives. Peter just finished school and aspires to earn his college degree. He plays soccer and during our visit was very curious to learn how the filter actually purifies the water.
Above: Micheal (left) and Peter speak with Jake, our International Business Manager, about the effectiveness of their filter. Below: We partner with ChildFund in Uganda to provide filters to families. Michael and Peter received their filter through ChildFund. As you can see, it is decorated- the family takes great pride in their filter.
Jacqulyn noticed a big difference in her family's health once they started using their TivaWater filter and now they use it for everything. They also love how the water tastes! Jacqulyn shared that she has only ever washed her baby in TivaWater water. She says her whole family is healthy now because of TivaWater.
