Drinking water in Nepal comes from several sources: 1) shallow wells, 2) public taps provided by the government, or 3) streams. Noe of these are very good options. The tap water is hazardous especially to children as it’s frequently not properly treated and is laden with bacteria. The wells produce water from the shallow water table that is frequently contaminated, and the streams are often polluted by upstream use.
Safe drinking water is a huge problem in Nepal and throughout the world. Ten years ago Ten Friends began installing water filters in orphanages. Each of these water filters provides safe drinking water for the children and staff – up to 100 people per filter.
