Water Project Updates

|

Several Wuqu’ Kawoq staff and volunteers had the opportunity to visit Socorro to perform pediatric assessments last week. We took a few minutes to visit our water team, who explained to us the process of making and maintaining these filters. It is impressive to see this project develop so quickly; after just a few months already more than half of the filters needed for the community have been constructed. We look forward to exporting this technology to other communities as well!

We were able to video record most of the filter demonstration and we have uploaded it to our YouTube video site. You can view it below:
