Safe water session with moms and kids..

with one comment

Big thanks to Andrea for setting up and organizing the session in Huascazala back during the 1st Saturday of this month.  4 moms showed up and more then enough kids to fill to capacity the play-pens at McDonald’s.  Andrea presented good information on home hygiene tracking, then opened the floor to yours-truly.  I had a bit of statistics to present about the water quality in our district, but was real anxious to get to our activity.  What I had for the ladies was a taste test between different types of treated and untreated water from Molinopampa.  Without knowing what they were consuming, I had them rate the taste of these 4 types of water:

-Tap water treated by boiling and cooling
-Tap water treated with a couple drops of bleach
-Tap water untreated
-Bottled water (San Carlos)

And as expected the bottled water was most favorable and actually the raw tap water and bleach water got pretty high marks.  The boiled water was most unliked but maybe that was because the bottle I transported it in might not have been extremely clean.  Nonetheless, none of the moms fortunately got sick after the experiment and hopefully learned something.  Andrea and I had a nice time.
