THE STORY:

Hi! My name is Christina Marino, I am a memeber of Engineers Without Borders here at Binghamton University. All my life I have loved giving back to the community and always have wanted to do it on a larger scale. This year our organization is working with Amazon Promise to build a water harvesting system in Hipolito, Peru. Rainwater harvesting systems have proved to be the best option for communities in need of drinking clean water in river villages. It is a simple, sustainable, and easy to operate and maintain system; people don’t need to have special technical skills to keep the system up and running for the future.

Amazon Promise wrote -

The combination of safe drinking water and hygienic sanitation facilities is a precondition for success in the fight against poverty and hunger (WHO). Each year, 1.6 million people die from diarrheal diseases (including cholera) attributed to lack of access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation. Amazon Promise, along with its partner organizations, are continuing to look for ways to reduce poverty and improve health in the Peruvian Amazon! Our vision is to install rainwater systems in many more villages. We also want to work with each family in the villages to install the composting bathrooms. With clean water and clean, safe toilet systems, that’s more than half the battle to maintain a healthy successful life.
