It is safe to say that ALL water supplies in rural areas, worldwide, require some form of treatment to be made safe for human consumption and rendered aesthetically pleasing. As populations have grown and humans have colonized the most remote regions of the earth they have brought with them disease causing organisms. There is no bottled water and it is definitely not a solution anyway. Consequently, rural populations are most vulnerable to water borne diseases of all kinds. The problem is complicated by the lack of availability or affordability of effective medical assistance.
It is often very difficult or even impossible for governments to help rural populations resolve their water crisis and the people must continue to cope.
The Cabin Clean Water Filter enables governments to reach out to rural communities and provide them safe drinking water, maximize the use of available water supplies, and to integrate the provision of this essential community service into a meaningful, manageable government program. Clearly, there are many opportunities for non-governmental organisations, international aid agencies and the private sector to assist with funds or skills.
The Cabin Clean Water Filter is designed to be sold in the most remote, simple business situations - village markets and roadside kiosks. The knowledge and skill sets of the people are sufficient. They can be responsible technical representatives with minimal outside support. The Cabin Clean Water Filter does not need to be expensive - people will buy a filter if it is available for sale.
The unique characteristics of the Cabin Clean Water Filter make it an effective and affordable solution to the often incredibly challenging problem of providing safe water to rural populations.
