Wishing Well International Foundation South Africa
The Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) in South Africa is a non-profit organization that provides clean, safe drinking water to developing areas by installing wells with Hydraid biosand ?lters that reduce bacteria and viruses in water.
The affordability, ease of use and minimal maintenance of the biosand and biofoam filters make them the most proven and sustainable filtration methods for rural areas. They use gravity, rather than pressure or electricity, to pass the water through the filtering media and the technology of the biofoam filters effectively remove contaminants to an even greater degree.
Each well and filter costs R1,500.00 and can be used by at least ten people for up to ten years.
