The turnover event on February 24, 2018 was held in Pinugay Elementary School and was attended by over 100 volunteers and 50 beneficiaries. Volunteers from Best Tank Corporation demonstrated to each beneficiary how to effectively clean their water filters so the equipment could last up to ten years and be sustainable.

The donation of water filters aims to give the communities access to clean and safe water, especially for young children and the elderly. Previously, communities would get water directly from water pumps and deep wells which could have been contaminated by various microorganisms from the environment.
