While we are continuing our planning for our future work in the community, We have also been reflecting back on the amazing progress this community has made through the efforts the past years of EWB, other NGOs and missionaries, and, of course, the great people in Ocho de Octobre. The community has completed construction of their pilla's and has been doing a great job on maintenance of their potable system. A reliable source of clean water has had such a huge impact on the overall health of the community. The community is also finishing building latrines for each home and has now even received electricity!
There is so much positive to talk about with this community and yet we are still planning for a few more items; An improved ditch network could eliminate standing water that breeds insects that carry disease and frustrates proper sewage disposal as well as basic hygiene, assisting with safety improvements on their water tower, and basic needs such as mosquito nets, shoes, and food. All your donations are appreciated!
