Water is not only a necessary component of life, but also it is one that we, in first world countries, take for granted. Around the world people do not readily have fresh and safe drinking water. Specifically, in Hipolito the people`s lives are revolved around collecting and purifying water. Although they attempt to purify and make the water safe for drinking, the people of Hipolito still develop diseases and parasites from drinking the water. The goal of H20 for Hipolito is for EWB to build filtration systems for the people of Hipolito. The donations will be going directly to the building, and planning of filtration systems, along with the travel costs for volunteers to implement the systems.
If you have any questions concerning the project, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
