Water Filters Improve Health of Students

The water filters given by ECCA are finally making an impact.

In November,10 schools in remote villages of Southern Lalitpur district in Nepal were provided with more than 200 stainless steel water filters as post earthquake support. These schools, after having gone through severe infrastructural damage and loss of safe drinking water accessibility, were seeking for a way to provide their students with safe drinking water facility. Some schools had to fetch water from far places and the purity could not be guaranteed. The threat to health of students and school community was irrefutable, thereby prompting  ECCA to provide the filters to all schools. The distribution had taken place in accordance with  number of students and classrooms in each school.

These stainless steel body water filters are fitted with nano-silver treated ceramic candle, which can remove bacteria, turbidity and protozoa”, says Prachet Shrestha from ECCA.

Now, every classroom in each school has a water filter which assures possible level of purification even upon long storage.

“Cases of water-borne diseases such as diarrhoea among the students has reduced”, said one of the teachers from Shree Kali Devi Higher Secondary School, Malta. The water filters will prove to be even more useful with the incoming of monsoon season when drinking water have high chances of getting mixed with turbidities.
