Seminar Water treatment
This week we held a one-day WASH seminar (water, sanitation and hygiene) at SAFINA in Geita, followed by a three-day seminar on water treatment with sodium hypochloride. The WASH seminar was attended by 40 participants, the seminar on water treatment by 34 participants. The rush was so great that we had to cancel many interested parties.
Contents were water treatment in general and practical exercises with four brought along devices. In the end, the equipment became the property of SAFINA. They keep training people. The four units are used in four locations to disinfect water for the population.
On the last evening of the seminar, the participants were able to drink their own treated water without fear of falling ill.
