Catiana Doufi bathes in the Rio Bajabonico, which runs beside her home in a batey in La Grua, Dominican Republic. The community participated in an educational session earlier that morning taught by members of the Rotary Club of Puerto Plata Isabel de Torres, Puerto Plata, who introduced the bio-sand water filter as an in-home water treatment option. The project is part of an effort funded by Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and more than 200 clubs in Canada, the United States, the Dominican Republic, and other Caribbean countries.
