Families of extreme poverty and communitarian mothers of the Instituto Colombiano de Bienestar Familiar were given 3,300 LifeStraw® Family water filters. The filters were distributed in 11 rural towns in the states of Bituima, Topaipi, El Peñon, Pacho, Agua de Dios, among others. The distribution was part of Millennium Development Goal programs related to safe water supply. It was led by Fundaset and the government of Cundinamarca state. In addition, the government’s health ministry tested samples of water treated with the LifeStraw® filters and confirmed the microbiological efficiency of the filters.
