Ten Rotarian's traveled to Panama to assemble and deliver water filters to families in the Chepo Region. There were four members from AC Rotary and members from OC/UT club and our District Governor Elect Tom and his wife Michelle on the trip which was coordinated by Ted Lands and organized by the Woodland Charities of Central America. 200 filters were delivered to households, many of which house multiple families. The team worked at the local school in each village, where they assembled filters, met the children and families who were to receive the filters. In some cases Rotarian's brought the filters to the homes to demonstrate them. The filters are medical grade, used in dialysis machines. They are capable of being back washed with a syringe and can be effective indefinitely.
