As a company we are thrilled to be working with lots of amazing non-profit organizations who are distributing Sawyer filters around the world. These organizations are changing lives through the provision of clean water. Currently our filters are being used in over 70 countries!
Today we would like to post a few photos from the field that give a glimpse into the incredible work our non-profit partners are doing.
The above photos were posted by I Thirst International. A team of I Thirst International staff just returned home from a trip to Nicaragua. During their brief trip, they were able to provide clean water to over 750 people!
These photos are from MAP International. The left photo was taken in Ecuador and the right in Uganda. In Uganda, MAP requires the filter recipients to put in labor hours into their communities to earn the filters and have a sense of ownership of the filters.
The above photos are from Just One Foundation. This organization began providing Sawyer filters last year and they focus on unreached communities in Kenya.
Thanks to all of our partners for their efforts and passion to provide clean water to those who truly need it.
