PUR Water Purification Kits

Provide water purification for families affected by HIV and Aids in Uganda.







Uganda-MapProgram Goal:   Procter & Gamble, developer of the PUR water filtration system, has partnered with ChildFund donors to provide a year’s worth of PUR water purification sachets to 1,000 households in Uganda’s Luwero district. The distribution of PUR sachets (365 per household) and water purification sets will provide safe drinking water to families living with HIV/AIDS. Additionally, ChildFund, working through trained community health volunteers, will educate families on the importance of proper hygiene, steps they can take to prevent diarrhea and how to recognize the danger signs of diarrhea that require prompt medical attention.

Expected Results: Approximately 1,000 households (5,000 to 6,000 people) living with HIV/AIDS will now have a reliable source of clean water. The PUR water filtration system, developed in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, provides a simple means of purifying dirty water in an affordable and convenient way. Families will be educated about the role of clean water in proper hygiene and sanitation, thereby greatly reducing the prevalence of diarrhea among participating households.
