Nearly 900,000 LifeStraw® Family water filters will be installed in almost all households in the Western Province of Kenya beginning on 26 April. The province-wide, door-to-door, free distribution program will last almost six weeks and reach about 90 percent of all homes without access to safe municipal water sources. It will provide point-of-use water filtration for Kenyan residents for at least 10 years and do so without any cost to local residents, governmental agencies or donor groups.By now, about one million homes around Kakamega have been provided with the filters. The company is aiming to give millions more homes in Kenya with the filters. Talk of hitting two birds with one stone: the project not only reduces water borne and related diseases but, too, helps in reducing emissions of greenhouse gases.
