Photo of Mrs Masikati and her water filterMrs. Chagwiza is one of our wonderful volunteers from Matiza village. She is a role model in her community and is dedicated to seeing every family in her village healthy and strong. Families in Matiza used to have serious problems with waterborne diseases—diarrhea, skin infections, and parasitic diseases were common. BioSand filters are making a huge difference.

“I am very happy with these water filters because they have taken us from a disaster” she says. “Now that we are safe, our children’s school attendance has improved…”

Clean water builds health and community capacity. Families are no longer spending scarce funds on medication and children can learn, adults can work, and everyone is looking forward to a better future.
