Bringing Clean Water to Madagascar – One Tablet at a Time

By |2022-06-16T18:44:07+00:00June 3rd, 2022|Direct Relief, Partnerships|

CLEAN International has partnered with Direct Relief to provide 150,000 purification tablets to Madagascar.

The average daily distance that people walk for water is 4 miles, but the search for water can take up to 12 hours every day. The water obtained through these methods can be highly contaminated and unsafe to drink. CLEAN International’s Worldwide [...]
