Rahbar Clean Water Project
Clean drinking water is one of the greatest blessings!. 85% of population in under-developed world does not have access to clean drinking water supply. Most chronic diseases like Hepatitis are linked to contaminated water supply especially in poor areas in and around big cities. Each Rahbar Clinic has provision for clean and filtered (when needed) water supply. We check Total dissolvable solvents (TDS) value along with Ph and bring to WHO standards of <400. We use reverse osmosis to clean the sediments and use special filters to get rid of all germs. Here is how a reverse osmosis process looks like!
Each water filtration plant serves > 4000 liters of clean water to local residents. In very host summer season, we use Chillers at plant to serve cold drinking water.
Here is how you can make a difference!
