Water Filters in Palawan

It's been over four months since I've added an update to my blog. So I'm finally getting to it.

I just returned from a ten day trip to Palawan

where I had the opportunity to help Craig Sutherland install seven BioSand Water Filters
for several tribal villages living in the foothills of southern Palawan. There I am helping Wilson wash sand.

The filters were made in Puerto Princesa, Palawan by the Palawan Conservation Corp. Here's a couple of the guys showing me the form they use to make them.

I have also put up several pictures on a web album that you can see at http://picasaweb.google.com/wmodavis/BioSandFiltersInPalawanPhilippines
