The Gift of Clean Water

The Gift of Clean Water


This gift will pay for a rural poor family in Tamil Nadu to receive a SAWYER water kit. Water is a scarce commodity in the Tamil Nadu villages that Salt of the Earth supports and none of it would pass European water cleanliness standards. Consequently water borne illnesses and diseases are a regular part of life and cause untold misery, reduced development and, sometimes, early death.

This water kit filters out all of the harmful bacteria that causes cholera, typhoid, amoebic dysentery, e.coli, streptococcus, salmonella and other harmful diseases. It uses medical technology developed from kidney dialysis. It is very simple to use and maintain and should last ten years or more. It can filter five gallons of unclean and contaminated water in under twenty minutes.

Salt of the Earth’s partners in India have identified contaminated water as a highly significant problem for the communities they work with. They have identified those families most as risk of water borne diseases and have trained them to use and maintain the filter kits properly. Understandably there is a big waiting list of families who wish to use the kit in their own homes.

Your gift will provide a family with access to clean drinking water, a thing that we take for granted but is a rarity in rural poor villages. It will be of great benefit to them for many years to come.
