Africa 2018

image1I am in Togo a west African-country(population 7.6 million) as a consultant for Light In The World Development Foundation to help implement a bucket water filter program. SAFE WATER PLUS provided the initial 50 filters to be distributed. LWDF owns & operates 2 medical clinics 1 in Lome & 1 in Agou. Realizing how important water is to the health of the people LWDF has committed to implementing a filter program in the region.

Mt. Agou, 120 km. from Lome, 2 hr. drive. Highest point in Togo, 1000 meters (3200 ft.). This is what was once jungle & covered in Tek wood which was harvested & sold to China. It will take several hundred years to regrow the trees.
