our water filter scheme

 

 

Our new Water Filter 'Jug' Scheme allows a small amount of unrestricted funding from our private donations to enable us to assist in the purchase of water filter jugs and 3 initial filter 'refills for those clients vulnerable and concerned regarding the medical need for purified drinking water.

Those living with HIV are vulnerable to serious infections such as; Microsporidiosis and Cryptosporidiosis which can be water borne, and are infections of the intestinal tract which causes acute diarrhoea. As a result, this can cause dehydration, malnutrition and the loss of crucial body salts. The dehydration can also result in low blood pressure, leaving the person in a state of clinical shock and the condition may leave the person with feelings of degradation and humiliation. Treatment of this condition may require hospitalisation. Contact KPS for details and an application form.
