2013 NWCSS Drinkwater filter

Clean drinking water is important for healthy living and therefore a basic right for everyone. In Kathmandu Nepal that’s a challenge since there a bacteria in the drinking water that makes all who drink it ill. At first it will cause only minor health complaints, but in the long run it can do more damage.

The NWCSS orphanage has a water filter machine to make the water drinkable. This machine was broken down and is in need of a new filter. That is why the children got ill.

4SmilingFaces made it possible to repair the machine and renewed the filter it self. We also agreed on a service contract, so also on the longer term the water will be clean and the children healthy.

Smiling Faces is the abbreviation for the Helping Hands 4 Smiling Faces Foundation, that was started by Tjitske Weersma in 2008. We improve the living conditions of children in children’s homes in developing countries with specific, small-scale projects in which they are central. We also support them when they have to leave those homes at 18 and have no safety net to fall back on. With us they come first. With our help they’ll go so much further, are they able to make their own choices and can they make shape their own lives.
