WHY THIS MATTERS

It is no secret that a lack of clean water can lead to many dangers such as malnutrition, disease, and even an increase in child mortality.

The good news is that this is a very solvable issue!

It is our goal to install and maintain 30 Sawyer Water Filtration Systems in remote homes within the Loreto region of the Peruvian Amazon, impacting 150 people in the coming year.

CHALLENGES AND OBSTACLES

We are currently working with CONAPAC in Peru to identify households where systems will be most impactful, and raising money to supply 30 such systems for installation this year!
