This issue of the AVFCW Newsletter highlights former AVFCW workshop attendees Ron and Carol Cousineau and their recent efforts to establish biosand water filter installations in rural Ecuador.
“In Ecuador there are few cities with adequate water supply and few with sanitation. The vast majority of the population does not have access to potable water. Biosand filters offer hope to poor families, who get water from shallow polluted wells or rivers and streams and must spend a significant portion of their daily earnings to boil their water.”
Also, please note that the preferred method of sending out the newsletter has changed to an e-mail based format, instead of a PDF attachment. (Those that receive it in the post will continue to do so.)
