Meeting with WQA very positive. The meeting with Peter Censky and Margit Fotre was better than expected. Peter Censky commended the work done to date by WWIF and vows to mention the Foundation and its purpose at his lecture at the upcoming WQA Annual Convention. Robert Hague, President of the WQA, offered the Foundation a booth at the upcoming Exhibition in San Antonio, however due to such short notice the Foundation elected to be featured at H2O International’s booth (Booth No. 615) and at KDF Fluid Treatment’s booth (Booth No. 906). Guillermo Guzman, WWIF founder and CEO, will be at booth 615 to answer any questions regarding the Foundation and its work. Issa and Denise Al-Kharusy will be promoting the Foundation and its work at KDF Fluid Treatment’s booth.

WWIF looks to send help to Haiti. The Foundation is busy searching for a Non-Profit to work with in Haiti. Logistics have been a challenge in Haiti and once the Foundation finds the right partner, it will send Biosand filters to be distributed to families affected by the earthquake of 2010. Haiti has had thousands die due to a Cholera outbreak from contaminated water.
