Saludos (Hi) from all of us at Water for Humans!
The families of Santo Domingo Barrio Bajo Etla and Victor Bravo Ahuja district of Oaxaca City have come to Water for Humans for assistance in securing clean safe water access.
Today, we are calling for your action to make a difference!
Imagine your child having to drink Coke in place of safe water.
That's what many Oaxacan families resort to.
The primary school in Santo Domingo Barrio Bajo Etla has foregone buying school supplies in favor of providing expensive bottled water for its students.
They've come to us to ask for help to install a water filtration system instead.
Meet the students of Santo Domingo Barrio Bajo Etla and Prof. Rosendo Barragan Mendoza
Professor Rosendo Barragan Mendoza teaches grade 6 at Valentin Gomez Farias Elementary School located in the village. Prof. Mendoza said, "Sometimes when we run out of water jugs and children are still thirsty, they have to drink water from the tap and this causes many diseases." He tells us that clean filtered water would allow the school to stop buying expensive bottled water - and spend the money instead on school supplies.
How is Water for Humans helping the children, and the school?
In continuing collaboration with INSO, Water for Humans will install a water filtration-purification system on the elementary school's water tank.
Estimated Project Cost: $500
