For the second year in a row, Carla Rowland of The Surf Institute and Ian Zamora of Zamora Surf will make the journey to the Philippines to bring clean water filters to rustic communities who need it most, on the main island of Luzon in the Philippines.
This December, Project Save Our Surf (PSOS) will be assisting The Surf Institute, Zamora Surf, and Coast Thru Life in the distribution of these drinking water filters. Together they will travel across the island visiting areas like Baler, La Union, and Pagudpud. “No one should go without suitable drinking water in 2012,” says Rowland, who is calling upon interested volunteers to join in the unforgettable trip.
The team will be a leader in an important movement to educate and encourage the Filipino people to maintain adequate, clean drinking water. Each person on this trip will empower multiple Filipino communities by passing on the tools to live easier with an independent and cost-effective source of drinking water.
“We really take for granted the most basic of needs here in the U.S. With nearly 16 million Filipinos living WITHOUT clean drinking water, it’s my hope that we can affect the lives of many who struggle in procuring this most fundamental life-sustaining requirement.”
All who are interested, please consider donating to this worthy cause or joining the team to volunteer. Contact Carla Rowland at TheSurfInstitute@gmail.com or visit The Surf Institute to learn more.
