    GRIFAID - Water Filters

    It is easy to forget how lucky we are to have clean water. How many times have you already turned the tap on today? Many people have to carry their water a long way and that water is far from clean often causing diarrhoea , typhoid and cholera and high infant mortality. 

    Family and Community Water filters continue to leave our factory and provide clean water where it is most needed . Many of these are sponsored by small charities who are supporting individual villages all over the world . Filters also go to new charities and often we get repeat requests following small fieldtrial. Our new locations this year have includedYemen with SOS YemenMozambique following thecyclone, and new sites in both Nepal and Sierra Leone.

    Rotary is a worldwide network of inspired men and women who translate their passions into relevant social causes, to change lives in communities.

    Made up of over 1.2 million Rotary members in 34,000 Rotary clubs in 200 countries and geographical areas around the world, Rotary International forms a global network of business, professional and community leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve communities locally and around the world - and form strong, lasting friendships in the process.

    Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (Rotary GB&I), as the name suggests, is the association of Rotary clubs within England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland, comprising 53,000 members - men and women of all ages and backgrounds - in 1,850 clubs.

    Rotary clubs are based within local communities, with their members meeting on a regular basis to enjoy friendship, networking, and to plan projects that will benefit the lives of others.

    Rotary clubs depend on the skills, expertise and dedication of their members, who work hard to change the lives of people in communities both at home and abroad. Find out more about Rotary in North East England by clicking on the image below.

    If you would like to join the Rotary family, volunteer your time to a community project or make a donation, register your interest and your local club will contact you with details of how you can help.
