  • Impact

    Impact

    The product is constantly evaluated and brings safe water to communities when required

    Risk

    The major risk is lack of funds
    we work very hard to secure new sources of funding as demonstrated by recent success in engaging Rotary clubs in Scandinavia and Switzerland in supporting us

    Reporting

    a full report with images is collected from each distribution and these are posted on our website as well as being circulated in our regular newsletters to donors and supporters
