Due to the tremendous support Trailblazer received in 2019, we were able to install 574 bio-sand water filters to rural families, that is 159 more filters than our annual goal.
Bio-sand water filters are designed to service 15 people, so this number of water filters could potentially provide over 8,000 individuals with clean, safe drinking water. This is a notable figure of rural Cambodians whose health and lives will be greatly improved because they have a bio-sand water filter.
We could not do this great work, though, without the generous support of our donors. Trailblazer is privileged to have the continued support of our efforts, and to be able to help raise our Cambodian partners further out of poverty and into more sustainable livelihoods. You can continue this success with an $80USD donation to purchase a water filter. You can donate in your name, or that of someone you would like to recognize.
You may be curious how the bio-sand water filter works. The diagram below describes how the filter functions to remove bacteria, viruses and protect against dangerous waterborne illnesses. With every bio-sand water filter installation, Trailblazer staff train the recipient family about the proper use and maintenance of the filter, as well as basic hygiene and santitation practices, to ensure the project is lasting.
