baler x waves for water

Waves for Water is a non-profit organization that aims to provide clean drinking water to places that are in dire need of it. Through small, portable, easy to install water filter kits, traveling surfers can very easily bring these filters to areas they visit during surf trips, helping the community in a simple way they can while enjoying waves too.

During their Philippine trip last year, Ian Zamora and Carla Rowland, of Zamora Surf and The Surf Institute, brought over some Waves for Water filters and distributed them to some coastal barrangays in La Union and Baler.

We went back to Baler last September to check on the filtartion kit that Carla and Ian donated to the P.Zubia Elementary School. The crew of Ako and Simula (lit. I Am the Beginning), a public service show broadcast on ABS-CBN, was there to film the CTL gang.

Ako ang Simula host, Poch taking a gulp of filtered water. Thank God the filter does its work!
