Drinking Water Filtration System
In Uganda, waterborne diseases are the leading cause of death of children under age five and a constant worry for mothers like Annet Kintu. Living far off the grid means Annet and her children do not have access to clean water.
The threat of diseases like typhoid or cholera once cast a shadow over her happy home, but today, Annet no longer worries thanks to a home filtration system, financed through FINCA’s BrightLife program. The new system filters up to 99% of pollutants from river and well water, making it safe for drinking and cooking, and giving Annet the peace of mind that her children are protected.
