Carbon for Water

More than four million residents of Kenya's Western Province gained access to safe drinking water in a six-week public health mobilization.

Over a six-week period, nearly 900,000 point-of-use water filtration systems were distributed to 90 percent of all households in Kenya’s Western Province.

The distribution program, called “Carbon for Water,” provided more than four million residents with quick access to safe drinking water at home.
