People in Need - PIN POTA

PIN POTA - manual water filtration device was deployed in Juba - capital city of South Sudan, where is currently (2014) large number of refuges.

Device is used in one of the refugee camps to filter water for 60 families (15 liters per family) totaling 900 liters of water from river Nile.

One local man was trained to operate the PIN POTA filtration unit. He is helping others, who bring water from river Nile to filter it 8 hours a day.

Local people invited the solution even though according to local myths, water which does not have taste is not drinkable. On the other hand they refuse to drink chlorinated water.

Additional unit will be deployed in Ethiopia.
