Ceramic Water Filter Distribution in Ciumbuleuit, Indonesia

Because of your generous support, on September 16, 2015, OIR was able to sponsor a ceramic water filter distribution in partnership with one of our Southeast Asia partners, Pelita Indonesia. During this event, 30 sets of ceramic water filters were distributed to families in the Ciumbuleuit District of Bandung, Indonesia.  By working alongside our partner and local leaders, Oasis International Resources targeted this distribution specifically to widows and families in extreme need within the community.

In addition to distributing the water filters, Pelita Indonesia was also able to provide much needed personal hygiene and sanitation education to the community members in attendance.  During this lecture, community members heard about the importance of using modern toilets, washing their hands using soap, management of household liquid and solid waste, and viable sources for treating drinking water.  It is because of you, that over 180 people now have life saving access to clean safe drinking water!
