Donation for Clean Drinking Water Filteration

Water Filter Donation Project

The Fatima Centre, run by the Good Shepherd Sisters n Bangkok, Thailand, is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing the quality of life of all those in need regardless of their religious affiliation. Under the expert direction of those whose sole concern is the welfare of others, the Fatima Centre provides education and employment opportunities for women and young girls at risk in the community and enables them to break out of the unending cycle of poverty.

Clean drinking water is an essential step to preventing illnesses and maintaining one’s health. Sister Louise, the Catholic Sister who had started the Fatima Center in Bangkok more than thirty years ago, also gave us information about her hopes to provide clean drinking water at the center. Water is a symbolic image and necessary to life. Potable water is essential for health and growth, but due to a number of issues, it is hard to come by in one of Bangkok’s poorer areas. E-coli contamination of drinking water and resulting gastrointestinal ailments in the children is among the most common problems.

Previous projects, however well intentioned, did not prove sustainable. United Educational Consultants has been volunteering with weekly English lessons at Fatima since 2004, and we are hoping to tackle this problem of no drinking water as soon as possible. UEC aims to deliver a water filter system that is easy to install, can either be self-maintained or require little servicing, is able to filter turbidity, bacteria, viruses, and smell, and able to support more than 700 people daily.

Washable / Reusable Pre-Filter

Removes river and lake water particles such as leaves, twigs, sediment and protects the sediment pre-filter from premature clogging. This filter is easily washed and cleaned when clogged.
APPROXIMATE FILTER LIFE EXPECTANCY depends on how dirty incoming water is or 1 year maximum.

Sediment Filter

Removes ground water sediment and protects the carbon block filter from premature clogging. Not washable.
APPROXIMATE FILTER LIFE EXPECTANCY depends on how dirty incoming water is or 1 year maximum.

0.5 micron Carbon Block Filter

Removes and reduces giardia lamblia and cryptosporidium cysts, entamoeba and toxoplasma cysts, volatile organic chemicals “VOC’s” pesticides and herbicides, benzene, sediment, color, bad taste and odors such as hydrogen sulfide “rotten egg smell” and many other microorganisms down to a 0.5 micron. This Carbon Block Filter polishes the water crystal clear for refreshing good tasting water.
APPROXIMATE FILTER LIFE EXPECTANCY 150,000 gallons / 555,000 liters or one year of clean incoming water maximum.

Ultraviolet Disinfecting Lamp

Clean, safe and natural UV light rays have the ability to kill the bacteria and virus to 99.999 % purity without any harmful side effects much like chemical agents normally added to drinking water. The ultraviolet range is ideal for killing Micro-organisms such as E-coli, Coli form, Cholera, Legionnaires Disease, Hepatitis Virus, Typhoid Fever, Dysentery, Infectious Jaundice, Influenza, Enteric Fever and many other unwanted Microorganisms.
APPROXIMATE UV BULB LIFE EXPECTANCY 9000 hours, or approx 12 – 18 months.
