"I am glad to report of the water filter distribution that we carried out late last month in Mautuma School. Most of the people here get their water from wells, while there are some who also go to fetch water from the river for domestic use. We were here to distribute water filters to some 209 families of our Mautuma school pupils including the school staff. At first the parents seemed not to be so much excited about the equipments. The reason they came to confess to me later was that they had once received some type of water filters from a certain organization but had stopped using them. The filters they were given could only filter a small amount of water after a length of time. When they saw the speed the sawyer water filter was filtering water, the packed room went into ecstasy, and the different exclamations could be summarized as- “this is it!”. Linda the water filters were joyfully received."

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.
