Pelita Indonesia Distributes Water Filters in Karang Tanjung
On August 12, 2016 our partner Pelita Indonesia distributed 60 ceramic water filters to residents in the village of Karang Tanjung, West Java, Indonesia.The village of Karang Tanjung is near Padalarang in West Java Indonesia. As a rural suburb of the regional capital Bandung, this farming community does not have the availability of clean drinking water. Most homes purchase expensive bottled water or boil water obtained from small wells near their home. However, most villagers do not boil their water long enough to kill the bacteria that live in the streams so they still face the daily effects of dysentery.
Because of your generous support, Oasis International Resources was able to provide $1,100 to Pelita Indonesia. Your donations allowed 240 individuals to have easy access to clean safe drinking water on a daily basis for the first time.
You too can help! Please click here and help others in Southeast Asia have access to safe drinking water today.
