Disaster Aid have donated 74 Sawyer Water Filters to improve Maternal Health

A collaborative relationship has been established with Emily Haanschuten community health facilitator.

Emily's roles and responsibilities, based at Ndui Ndui Health Centre from April 2016 – April 2018, include helping the community with health awareness, capacity building, electronic health records and education in the areas of WASH, Reproductive Health and Noncommunicable diseases.

On behalf of Disaster Aid International Emily has placed the Sawyer Water Filters with the most vulnerable and needy families in West Ambae for use in maternity wards and elsewhere in the Health Centre.

Emily does a needs assessment conducted at approximately one month before baby's due date.

If required new Mothers will go home with a Sawyer water filter attached to a new bucket after being discharged from the Ndui Ndui Health Centre

I carry bottles of water, but I also have a Sawyer squeeze water filter. Also, if it’s cold, make sure you sleep with your water filter in your sleeping bag, so it doesn’t freeze.
