EARTH COUNCIL Geneva has no connection with the EARTH COUNCIL ALLIANCE


With the generous support of Earth Council Geneva, International Medical Corps will intervene in the village of Bait al Gadabi and provide ceramic water filters and training on their use to each of the approximately 220 households in the village.  These ceramic water filters are designed to sterilize the water for a 7 member family for a period of 3 – 4 years (depending on water quality), and are an effective and cost-effective method of assuring access to clean water for the community. International Medical Corps has notable experience distributing these types of ceramic water filters and training recipients in their use, and this intervention will have an immediate benefit in terms of increased access to clean water while also helping make these households more resilient to future environmental shocks.
