Water purification

Here is another of African Evangelical Enterprise’s projects.  Traditionally local people in this valley near Rwamagana have been fetching this murky water from this water hole like this man in the foreground.  Obviously the water is not good for human consumption even after boiling. 

AEE helped to dig a big hole in the ground, put in a big tank and filtration material.  

The tank and filter is located right under where the people and jerrycans are standing. The water, after filtration, is much cleaner which is suitable for human consumption, after boiling. 

Judging by the long line of cans waiting to be filled, people have much more faith in the filtered water than the murky water in the open.
