Skype Call 2
Today we are making our second Skype call to out-of-state individuals. Our first one was with the BioAusable team. This one is with Gerald Ohs who works with CAWST. He has taken part in many mission trips with bio-sand filters as a major point of them. He and a group of other people have gone on trips to other countries where they have given classes to villagers on how to use, build, and maintain bio-sand filters.
Affordability is a major concern with bio-sand filters. People also don’t realize that most of their illnesses and diseases come from dirty water. There is a lack of understanding in third world countries preventing people from making the connection between illness and unsanitary water. It is very important to teach people how the bio-sand filters work and how to fix them. One way to teach them is through illustrated manuals rather than written descriptions.
