Water filters

According to UN reports, 18M people in Yemen lack access to clean water. This has resulted in the largest cholera outbreak recorded, with over 2M suspected cases. Filtering drinking water is a key in the prevention or reduction of cholera outbreaks.

The Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation has distributed 1,200 water filters to places with high cholera incidence, including refugee camps in Aden and Lahj. In July 2020, we shipped 2,000 more water filters. We plan to distribute 3,500 water filters in 2020, especially in communities affected by floods where the risk of cholera is expected to be high.
