In Bangladesh, we are into our sixth year of partnership with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Bangladesh to provide new, safe tube wells in northern communities. Despite the progress we have made so far in constructing 150 tube wells, the need is immense.
ERDO’s clean water program involves high quality construction and materials, and the monitoring of the water source to ensure it remains well cared for. The construction also takes into account what happens with run-off water as pooled run-off water is a breeding ground for Malaria-carrying mosquitoes.
In Cambodia, we’re working with our partner, Asian Outreach, to deliver Bio Sand filtration units to 325 of the most vulnerable families who are currently consuming unclean water and experiencing high illness and death rates.
These water systems take unclean water, and sift it through several levels of cleaning agents, including a “biologically active” layer of microorganisms which actually consume pathogens. The water travels through all of the layers to become safe for drinking.
