Purified Water for Olancho
After years of medical missions treating parasitic diseases, Carlos Najera realized Olancho, Honduras, needs clean water for drinking and cooking. Safe drinkable water is essential to human survival and is a condition for the exercise of all other human rights. Give $25 to help build a water purification system that will offer clean drinking water to a village of more than 100 families. The Olancho Aid Foundation has already installed 17 purification systems since 2015 and seeks to build 10 more in 2017. Carlos and his team first meets with community members to give the ownership of this important project to whom it belongs. After developing this relationship, community members receive training on maintaining the purification system. Olancho residents themselves will invest what they can in the project. Some will help build the structure that houses the system. Some will lay the piping. Others will educate their children about the importance of clean water. Because of this community based approach, local families will have sustainable access to purified water and drastically reduce the rates of water born illnesses within the village. Let’s do this in Olancho…and then in another village, then another, and another….
