Report: Give Clean Water follow up in Varavu Village

This past trip to Fiji was full of learning moments. We were affirmed in our belief that these filters are life changers, and that our pledge towards continued education and follow ups must remain steadfast. Follow ups that include the village head man, the Fiji Health Ministry, local community leaders, and the Give Clean Water team will ensure a lifetime of clean water for each family who receives a filter.

One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to Varavu Village on the Northwest side of the big island of Fiji. This village was full of people who were perfectly using their filters!

In this video, Mohamed, the head priest at the local Muslim mosque, talks about his filter and its benefits to the village. He also talks about the school across the street in which GCW installed filters. Pretty cool stuff.
