Wish List

We have the opportunity to bring stuff down with a group in August from the States... so here is your chance to buy us a little something that we need in the office. If you’re interested in helping us purchase these things, please write to me at or give on line at and put in the memo line ‘leon’ and what the money is for.

· Printer cartridges HP 60 @£16/$26 a pair (they are double the price in Ecuador)

· Comfortable Therm-a-Rest mattress for Alfredo £65/$100

· Replacement Filter cartridges for katadyn vario multiflow water filter @£ 18/$30 each (this is the water filter we use when we are in the jungle)

· 2 wide-mouth water bottles (Nalgene) that fit on to the Katadyn filter @£10 /$16 each

· External hard-drive for office file back-up and ‘caselogic’ case @£65/$100

· 2 Bug-huts (mosquito nets that are self supporting, like a dome tent) @£50/$80

· New desktop computer and back-up battery protection @£500/$800

Engineering in Emergencies handbook £30/$50

Field guide to environmental engineering for development book £30/$50

Field guide to appropriate technology book £50/$75

And some desired stuff for us...

· Feminine Appeal by Carolyn Mahaney, the book for my next women’s book study @ £10/$15

· Delagua have offered free filters, but postage costs £90. This will mean we could filter drinking water instead of boiling.

· A digital SLR camera, memory card and case @£400/$650

· Samsung galaxy tablet £320/$500
