Life for the Ibaraizibu village seems so sweet and like such a relief since they’ve received and begun using a water filter and are drinking clean water.
Before receiving the filters, women of each family spent a lot of time preparing safe water for drinking. From walking many miles to gather water, to carrying it back and boiling it, the daily chore of providing clean water for themselves and their was all consuming.
In this village, 6 families share one filter brought to them by MPA. Members have a schedule, or as they call it a “timetable”, for when they each use the filter. Following their allotted filtering time, they take the filtered water home to their families knowing that they will have enough to last them several days. Together as a village, they have found that having a set schedule to plan for who filters water for their family on what day has eliminated the stresses or worry about having clean water.
They are so happy with the filters and say that now they are very rich because they can drink clean water that will not cause water-borne diseases for their families. And that just goes to show what riches really are – the security of being with the ones you love without fear of illness or death!
They thank MPA for their support and being concerned for their health.
