The Lifesaver Cube (‘the Cube’) is a household water filter developed in collaboration with Oxfam. Dirty water is stored inside the Cube, which resembles a tough five litre jerry can. The small pump on the cap is used to increase the pressure inside the Cube, forcing water through an internal membrane filter which removes bacteria, viruses and other pathogens.
Over 2,300 units have been distributed by Oxfam in South Sudan to date. This report summarises why we are using the Cube, lessons learned so far, recommendations and plans for the future.
