Clear Drinking Water

The Grafschafter Lions Club Moers (GLMC), which already took over an object sponsorship in favor of the children’s village project “Angaza Children’s Village” in 2017, donated a PAUL system (Portable Aqua Unit for Lifesaving) to the ZAC eV.

Roland Schaffer, ex-president of the Grafschafter Lions Club Moers, handed over the PAUL system coming from the own stock of the GLCM on May 28th 2019 to the ZAC e.V., which was sent to Lutindi in July.

Katja Zühlsdorf thanked on behalf of the entire board for this great donation in kind and was instructed (see picture) in place of Roland Schaffer in the functioning of the device. With the PAUL system, now healthy drinking water is available to the children of elementary school in Lutindi and all other villagers.

PAUL does not require an external energy source, is very easy to handle and is also extremely robust. A patented nano-membrane system safely filters bacteria, viruses and dirt out of the water.

So far, the drinking water for all residents of the village was taken from a stream, but is germ-laden, which was the cause of frequent diarrheal diseases and severe health problems. That now is a thing of the past after PAUL’s installation in Lutindi.

Immediately after the safe arrival of the system in Lutindi, a water house was built in the immediate vicinity of the Lutindi Primary School. At the top of the newly constructed water house is a 500-liter large domestic water filling tank, which feeds the still contaminated water into the underlying PAUL system. Here it will be filtered. The now clean drinking water then passes into a 500-liter drinking water discharge tank arranged under the PAUL, from which cooled drinking water can be withdrawn thanks the type of construction.
