One simple filter. The Hydraid® BioSand Water Filter reduces the leading causes of death and disease in the developing world.

It removes parasites, bacteria, and viruses from contaminated water making it safer to drink. It’s the first point-of-use technology of its kind that is designed to deliver safe water for a family with the expected life of more than 10 years.

We know that water wells can often get contaminated, which is why a filter of this kind is needed. And we know that other filters just aren’t sustainable or lack the capacity to meet daily family needs. Hydraid® is the filter that is proven to deliver safe water in the home at point-of-use.

Burkina Faso Map

In 2011, we will be providing filters to families in the country of Burkina Faso. With a population of over 16 million, Burkina is located in Western Africa, just north of Ghana and south of Mali. They are one of poorest nation in the world. To effectively distribute, install and train families how to use their new water filter, we have partnered with ACCEDES. They have been actively involved on they ground in Burkina since the mid 80’s serving the many physical needs of the people.
