Project Description

Why is clean drinking water important?

Clean drinking water, how special is this? The fact that we in the Netherlands have clean drinking water is something we do not think about everyday. We just turn on the tap, flush the toilet, turn on the garden sprinkler and we have unlimited access to water. The costs for this are also extremely low and with a direct debit you don’t have to worry about water for a single moment.

This is a completely different story in Indonesia and therefore also in Bali. Residents do not have access to clean drinking water as a matter of course. In Bali, in areas where there is no natural clean water, rainwater is boiled or ‘gallons’ (water tanks) are purchased. Balinese people living in poverty do not have sufficient financial means to buy gas or gallons. This means that for drinking water they depend on the available rainwater and the water in streams and rivers. This water is dirty, which means there is a high risk of all kinds of diseases.

A water filter is a simple and inexpensive solution and filters 99.99% of harmful bacteria out of the water

What do we do?

Bali Care Foundation wants to provide those in need with a Tulip water filter. The filter system consists of two buckets, a filter and a tap. This relatively simple and cheap solution filters 99.99% of the harmful bacteria out of the water. The filter provides safe drinking water which contributes to better health and fewer diseases among the poorest population group on Bali.

What can you do?

Do you also want to contribute to the health of the people in need in Bali? That is possible! For about € 25 we can make sure that one family is provided with a water filter that will guarantee them at least two years of clean drinking water. Because of the simple design, the filter can be used by everyone and there are no unnecessary costs involved in buying gallons or gas tanks. Become a donor of Bali Care Foundation. Together we can do more.


As long as there is poverty in Bali, we will continue to work with full conviction to improve living conditions. Donate today and make a difference!
