Exciting news today with water filters assembled by our staff during a Staff Development Day team activity arriving in Uganda.

Staff wore blindfolds while making the filters to raise awareness that poor water quality is the biggest cause of avoidable blindness in the developing world.

The filters passed strict quality assurance testing by the Water Works Program in NSW before being shipped to Kasese in the Rwenzururu region of Uganda by charity partner Lifewater International.

The filters are now being given to families in Kibanda.

Pretty cool to see the fantastic work of our staff is now making a huge difference for those in need not only in Bendigo but worldwide.

Well done all!
