Homeowner Cruz Guarcas Coc is a proud recipient of a British Berkefeld water filter by Habitat. She is very excited about the changes that have been made to her life because of her new water filter.
Before owning her water filter she drank from her pila (sink) which often left her sick, but now because of her filter and other Habitat products she believes, “Everything has changed for the better because of my access to drink clean water every day.”
Roughly 25% of Guatemalans don’t have acess to clean drinking water, which often carry water-borne diseases that can cause acute diarrhea among other problems. Providing water filters like these is one way Habitat Guatemala works to reduce health risks.
