Meet some of the Biofilter Recipients in Kajo Kejo, South Sudan: This grandmother is looking after many grandchildren as all of her own children have died. To help her in this challenging circumstance, she received a biofilter sponsored by Grosche.
Community Health Agent Training: Bruce, Helmi and Eric provided “Train the Trainer” training for Community Health Agents from the Safe Water Projects in South Sudan. The trainers help people understand water related illnesses, transmissions routes & barriers, how biofilters purify water, and how investing in safe water is less expensive than current expenditures on medicine, and other water illness related costs.
