Grifaid water filters ready to support fight against Covid
While all the governments in the world are currently racing to vaccinate their population, an ongoing threat is still looming. Many of the developing countries are still trying to provide access to clean water to its people and the lack of access is creating additional pressure on overstretched health care workers.
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation published a study which showed that an estimated 2 billion people are at higher risk of spreading the virus due to the lack of access to clean water.
Our filters, which are already in use in over 40 countries, have been shown to have a positive impact in the overall health of the communities. Shelley Quantrill, senior theatre sister and chairman of SVJC Charitable Trust, said: “Since 2014 there have been direct improvements in the health of the local population. This is a demonstration of a major benefit from Grifaid Community filters in the field.”
