THE STORY:

My name is Gregory Gaglione, and I am a student at Binghamton University and member of Engineers Without Borders. 

 

Coming from a generally wealthy family and a first world country it has been easy for me to take the simple amenities of life for granted.  The ability to get clean, drinkable water from a sink, fridge, or a supermarket seems to be a simple resource that should be accessible to anyone. After learning about H20 for Hipolito and the issues caused by dirty drinking water, I wanted to help in any way possible.  The 300-350 in Hipolito, Peru contract diseases and parasites because of contaminated drinking water and unsanitary water collecting systems.  Because of this, water filtration systems will be built by EWB for the people of this town.  No one should have to worry about the availability of clean drinking water, and the goal of this project is to help give the members of the town that right.    

 

Donating for this cause would go towards the planning, materials, and costs of traveling for volunteers from EWB to help the people of Hipolito. Don't hesitate to email me with any questions at ggaglio1@binghamton.edu

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.
