October 17th. was the second distribution. We handed out 64 filter kits to 60 families, the other 4, 1 went to a small medical clinic & the remaining 3 to the school to be placed in class rooms. 312 people attended, 184 adults & 128 children. The need is so great in the community that the Masaya Club decided to hold 3 more distributions at Diriomito & 1 in El Tunel. Some of the recipients walked 3-4 miles to receive a bucket filter. We had a total of 85 families sign in. The ones that didn’t receive a filter will be first on the list Thursday. In the group pictures there are not as many due to the length of the session & heat. Many left after receiving their bucket & preforming the assembly.
