Thomas Paterek's Fundraiser:

Clean Water for a Village

Thomas' Photo
Thomas Paterek

THE STORY:

Although rich in beaches, volcanoes and jungles, Nicaragua is still one of the globes poorest countries. Inadequate water services and environmental destruction contribute to poor living conditions, disease and a high mortality rate.

Water is vital, a basic human need, yet is truly a luxury enjoyed every time we turn on our tap. The U.N warns that, “Overcoming the crisis in water and sanitation is one of the greatest human development challenges of the early 21st century.” However, sustainable, efficient water-treatment systems and safe drinking water is an achievable goal. 

WHO WILL YOU BE HELPING?

• 100% direct funding to Nicaraguan families in rural Leon and Popoyo

• Children and women most affected by disease and the lack of basic sanitation, limiting their ability work or attend school

WHAT WILL BE THE IMPACT?

• 2-3 years of clean water access for each family, including contamination education and materials

• For every $1 invested in improved water supply and sanitation there is $4+ return to the local economy
