Creating a Sustainable Water Initiative in Jazmin

Jazmin's Children

Jazmin's Children
These are the children of the town, the individuals worst hit by a lack of access to safe drinking water. Worldwide, over two million children die annually from preventable and treatable water-related illnesses. Millions others remain ill for months.

Costa Rica

Costa Rica
The country is one of stark contrast; some of the best health and education systems in Latin America, but not reaching all of its citizens. However, it is also a promising environment with many opportunities to engage these challenges.

Clinic of Jazmin

Clinic of Jazmin
Despite a well-staffed clinic, with full support from FIMRC and countless international volunteers, the population still suffers from a lack of access to safe drinking water while saturating the clinic's capacity.

Pig Farm

Pig Farm
The area where water collects and flows down to Jazmín is downstream of a pig farm, the root of many ailments for this and surrounding communities.

The Community of Jazmin

The Community of Jazmin
The geography of the community is an important factor in addressing the challenges faced by the people of Jazmín. Here you can see houses on the hill, with the pig farm in the distant top.
