My Message

Do you know how lucky you are to have accessible clean water in Vancouver? In Guatemala, one of the biggest contributing factors to rural poverty is the low availability of drinking water and sanitation. Farming families rely on rain to grow food, and there are long periods of drought each year without rain to water the soil. Women and children walk up to 7 hours each day to fetch scarce of water from streams for drinking, cooking, bathing, and cleaning. This water usually dirty and infested with waterborne bacteria and viruses that cause children to suffer from illness and eventually die from it. Children, especially girls, are unable to go to school because they would need to fetch water each other. Life is a daily struggle for survival. A differnt life and future is possible for families and children if you're willing to lend a helping hand. 

This year we have the privilege of helping Parrequená. The community has a total of 850 inhabitants, 140 families. One of our biggest project to date, and will cost at least $85,000. The climate at Parrequená is mostly dry with relatively little precipitation. You can imagine how many trips they need to take everyday to fetch water. It doesn't take much to help. Spare your coffee or lunch money. Give a life, save a life. It means something to make a difference in somebody else's. Be the change in you. For every $100, you can provide clean water for a child lifetime.
