Third Project in Cuba CompletedOn January 28th we returned form our 3rd visit to Cuba where we installed another 3 water filter systems. We teamed up with a group of nine people from St. David's, Wayne PA and we worked together in Ciego de Avila. We also trained two plumbers how to maintain and install the filter systems so we expanded our team and capabilities by an order of magnitude.
