Our deepest gratitude goes out to all those who made this trip possible...

The team has finally made it home tonight after a 24 hour delayed flight trying to leave Cameroon on Saturday.  Hooray!  Job well done team!  We are glad to have you home!

The travel team had a lot of people helping to make this trip possible this semester.  They were supported by a design team of about 25 students who worked extremely hard trying to create the best design for our filter mold, working on efficiency calculations, researching all aspects of sustainability, and looking into expanding our solar water pumping system.  Great job design team!

This trip also would not have been possible without the support of the College of Engineering or the Alumni Association.  Thank you to all who have donated to our chapter over the last couple of years!  In particular, thank you Murphy's Steel for providing and bending the steel for our mold, and Danny Richardson and Steve Beard for helping to troubleshoot mold construction problems.

We are holding a Benefit Dinner on Thursday March 12th at the Marriott Courtyard in Newark, DE.  To further support this organization visit our homepage at http://udel.edu/stu-org/ewb/ and register for the event.

And much thanks to Sam, Cameroon Project Manager, without whom the team would not have made it to Cameroon or back (literally, since two AirFrance flights were canceled and she caught it.) I don't think many people know how much you've done. Great job organizing this trip!

I'm glad you all made it back to the States safely!!! I have of course been following your blog ... I just reread all the posts start to finish, and I have to say I'm so proud of you all and it makes me incredibly happy to see how EWB-UD has flourished since our start just 2+ years ago. Water is life ... and I'm sure you all have such a different understanding of that after the past two weeks. I can tell you this ... your trip to the 'roon will stay with you always :) See you all at the fundraising banquet!
