On September 3, 2008, Ron Rivera, Coordinator of the Potters for Peace Ceramic Water Filter program, passed away. His hard work and dedication to to helping people around the world in need of clean drinking water is difficult to measure. Ron Rivera helped other people for one simple reason–he helped them, as our colleague Bryan Boulanger would say, “because it is the right thing to do.” Thank you, Ron. We will miss you.
