What's it about


Households that use a Tunsai water filter typically reduce or eliminate boiling water for drinking. Less boiling means less use of non-renewable wood and charcoal, which are the main sources of energy for cooking in rural Cambodia. By reducing the need for fuel wood and charcoal, each CWP reduces the stress on local forest resources and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Water-borne disease is a leading cause of illness in the developing world, contributing to the death of two million children every year, on average. Globally, 884 million people are without access to safe drinking water and more than 2.6 billion lack access to basic sanitation. Lack of access to water killed more children annually than AIDS, malaria and measles combined, while the lack of sanitation affects 2.6 billion people - 40 per cent of the global population.

The Tunsai water filter contributes to improved public health at the same time as greenhouse gas emissions are reduced.

Hydrologic seeks to disseminate 168,000 to 315,000 units between 2010 and 2017. As of 30 April 2013, 111,759 units have been distributed and the company estimates that 80,967 units are still in use. > Read more
