Field Note #172: The Difference a Filter Makes


This is Foliobo! We came to his house in Jabacao, Dominican Republic to follow up on a filter he received a month ago. When he heard who we were his eyes watered. He went on to tell us how grateful he was because his kids and grandchildren haven't been sick or thrown up ever since. The clean water tastes great and how convenient it is to not worry about how to get more water when needed. This was so inspiring to hear, because this is what this filter does - changes lives and builds such a special relationship!
