Maji Salama is a UK registered charity supplying us with aquafilters towards the implementation of ‘Maji Salama Kijijini Project’ in urban informal human settlement areas, peri-urban and rural areas where the inhabitants are at risk of contracting waterborne diseases due to bacterial contamination in water.
The University of Newcastle upon Tyne, through the Microbiology Department at the Newcastle Hospitals NHS Trust, is undertaking a study of the Aquafilter’s ability to filter out waterborne viruses as well as bacteria and other pathogens. We will continue to monitor the effectiveness of the Aquafilters and report the findings.
