The fantastically successful ‘Walk Moray for Busega’ has seen some of its proceeds spent on an Imperial Berkey water filter.
The Berkey will purify untreated water from lakes and where the local water supply may be compromised. The filtration elements have a very fine matrix creating millions of micro-fine pores. The pores are so small that pathogens are not able to pass through and other contaminants are adsorbed. Berkey filters are used worldwide in emergencies and natural disasters.
This is perfect for the Mayega Children’s Centre, where water is currently carried from Lake Victoria. Boiling can kill bacteria etc. but the lake suffers from pollution, due to the large population living on its shores.
The Imperial Berkey can produce over 40 litres of clean water per hour and the filters should last over 10 years. It is a long held ambition of Busega Scotland to have safe drinking water at Mayega and now we will get on with bringing the water in pipes and not in buckets!
Thanks to Busega Scotland walkers and supporters for making life safer at the Children’s Centre.
