Yesterday I received an order of 200 water filters from Rotary International! These filters will be distributed through ANADESA to needy families in the community. We'll be keeping busy with seminars on use and care of the filters, and following up after several weeks, and again after several months. The hospital, and local public clinic will also be referring people to ANADESA to receive the filters. We've been using a filter here at the house for about 3 months now and it's all I drink so I can tell the people that I know it's safe. ANADESA will also be able to sell the replacement filters after 1 year, and can accept beadwork or cloth (which they then sell) as payment. I was told that the Rotary had not heard of an organization that accepted 'in kind' payments and they were anxious to see how it works.
