Water is flowing in Los Tehuistes!

BENEFITING: Caminos de Accion
GREAT NEWS! After 2 years of lobbying, the community of Tehuiste in El Salvador and CdA have succeeded in collaborating with local government to provide access to the #2 necessity (next to air) in life: WATER.
During the next month and a half, water tanks, piping to homes, an industrial filter and a water pump (connected to the recently perforated well) will be constructed and installed so that every home in Tehuiste has running water. Up until now, community members (mostly female) have walked up to 5 miles one direction to obtain one container of water for their families. Now they have the opportunity to simply turn on the faucet and drink clean water.
Because of a number of factors, we need to raise $7,500 by the end of September.
Can we count on you to help out?
