On November 27, 2015 ECCA handed over 138 sets of water filter to representatives of five schools located in Southern Lalitpur, where immediate attention for safe drinking water was required. Infrastructures and accessibility to safe drinking water in those schools were destroyed by the earthquake thus creating a threat to the public health.Hence, based upon the number of students, Shree Gothbhangyang Higher Secondary School of Dalchoki, Shree Jana Jagriti H.S.S. of Ikudol, Kali Devi H.S.S of Malta, Shree Mahakali Devi H.S.S. of Bhatttedada and Shree Magar Gaun H.S.S. of Sankhu received 28 sets, 31 sets, 29 sets, 32 sets and 18 sets of water filters respectively.
The filters will be used for safe drinking water purpose in all classrooms. This will help in promotion of better health of students and teachers residing in the rural area. ECCA plans to provide water filters sets to other needy schools as well.
These stainless steel body water filters were assembled in ECCA and are fitted with nano-silver treated ceramic candle, which can remove bacteria, turbidity and protozoa.
We thank all our donors for their continous support in our mission of providing safe drinking water for people living in remote Nepal, especially for those affected by the earthquake.
