Distributing Sawyer Filters in Vuvulane

We'll be in Mambaweni on Saturday to participate in a community meeting to discuss problems caused by the lack of clean drinking water in this community. The Rotary Club of Dumbarton in the UK has donated 30 Sawyer Filter kits for distribution. The water for this and the surrounding communities comes from irrigation ditches. The water has tested positive for some mix of E.coli and coliform bacteria. There is no sanitation here. The current diarrhea outbreak has taken the lives of nearly 40 children from across Swaziland. We would need close to 700 filters to help every family in this area. Filters cost approximately $65 apiece, but last a lifetime with proper care. Please visit (or the donate button on the KudvumisaFoundation Facebook page) if you would like to help. Message us if you can help!
