Safe Water Changes Everything
In Indonesia, more than 10% of children under the age of 5 die from diarrheal diseases caused by dirty drinking water. That’s 410 children, or like one 757 Boeing Airbus crashing every single day.
terra aims to get safe drinking water into the homes of the most vulnerable populations in Indonesia. We work with a network of local and international organizations that help us identify and deliver filters to families with the most need, and educate them on good WASH practices.
Using renewable sources from the ground, tap, rivers and rain means that families have water in abundance. With the terra filter women and children don't need wood or natural gas to boil water which lead to deforestation and global warming, both negatively affecting our environment.
terra filters save families time and money, up to 6 hours/day and approximately Rp. 6,000,000 ($430) over 2 years compared to plastic bottles. Also healthcare costs diminish because diarrheal diseases disappear resulting in opportunities for women to work and a better future for kids.
