Traditional Birth Attendants and New Water Filters
Bob Sterken from Main Street UMC in Mansfield helped to procure 40 water filter systems. The water filter system is a simple device that attaches to a local bucket to filter dirty creek water and turn it into clean drinkable water easily and quickly. Bob taught the clinic staff how to make and use the bucket and together they taught and shared this resource with the over 40 TBA's at their monthly training in June 29th. The TBA's were amazed and excited about this new life saving resource. Some traveled home with a bucket other's will carry a bucket to the clinic for their next meeting and make and receive the water filter system.
