Working with our hands in the Phillipines as Australian borders were temperamental. Waves for Water educated and provided the provinces Bohol, Cebu, Negros Oreintal, Negros Occidental & Palawan with 102 water filters, these filters will provide 5,100 individuals access to clean water.

As usual we would not be able to do this without the help from our community, so a huge thank you to everyone who has purchased a sustainable PARGO product. Every PARGO purchased helps provides people in need access to clean water.
