UPDATE: Our friends at Aqueum are so keen to help us fund this BioSand Filter project that they have offered to match any donations between 15- 30 December £ for £ until we meet our £7,500 goal!

IChemE’s WaterSIG is 30 years old this year and to celebrate we want to help those who are most in need of clean water around the world. 

Clean Water in Cambodia
Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean! But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world. 

We want to raise £7,500 together to fund a BioSand Filter project in Cambodia. There’s lots of water in Cambodia, but it isn’t safe to drink. Only half of the rural population has access to a reliable source of drinking water. charity: water with their local partner, Clear Cambodia, provides BioSand Filters to schools and communities in need of clean water. 


Clean Water
BioSand Filters are both inexpensive and incredibly durable.

They're made of rock and sand which remove harmful bacteria from water so families don't have to drink dirty water anymore!
 

If we don't hit our target, charity: water will use the funds for the country of greatest need. No matter what, 100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects.
