Finally, thanks to your generous support, we have reached and even exceeded our financial goal. For this reason we are going to deactivate the project, although you can continue to follow the progress on our facebook page
@aguacerotecnologiaysaludcomunitaria and keep in touch through our email address.
This is progress of the project so far:
45 filters to purify water delivered that directly benefit 320 people
8 first aid courses carried out that directly benefit 84 people, and indirectly all the communities where they live and work
The complete realization of this project is still on the way
Thanks again to everyone for being with us in this basic and useful project in Chiapas.
Water and health continue to be our priorities, so we are working to be able to present another project on this GlobalGiving platform soon.
Good job everyone and thanks from all the Aguacero team
In the last months we have dedicated ourselves to work focused on the maintenance of water systems carried out in the year 2021 by our association and we were also developing a project of alternatives energy for food preservation in rural areas. We take advantage of those work trips to deliver some water filters: in July we delivered 10 water filters to a small community in the Los Altos area and in August we delivered 4 filters to a town near Comitan, so that the people of the community can get to know them and see if they find them a good system to purify water. They seem very interested right now but we want to make sure they really like the filters and they can give them a good maintenance so that each family decides later if they are interested in having this filtration method in their home.
Because of these commitments we planned to resume the first aid courses in October and November.
Thank you all very much for your continued interest in our work!
Dear supporters, we want to share some updates about the development of the project that you helped us to realize.
Finally we went to the Pacific Coast region of Chiapas in February, for the scheduled first aid course, with ten people of a local cooperative dedicated to fishing and tourism.
Most of the participants were women and we have to admit that we had a lot of fun in the hot setting of the workshop and surrounded by the curiosity of children and dogs passing by. The interest in having a basic intervention tool in medical emergencies was very high, because the medical care centers are far from the village where the cooperative is located...so we also returned there in March, to delve into some topics such as taking vital signs.
In april we provided, in San Cristobal de las casas, another two first aid courses with a human rights civil association that works in areas of many conflicts in chiapas and that needs tools to deal with possible accidents during their work in support of local communities.
This month of May we will take a break from the first aid courses, to dedicate ourselves to the other water projects of our association Aguacero and deliver the ready water filters that are just waiting to reach their final destination.
We say goodbye for the moment, always remembering with great affection your support
We want to start by saying how much we appreciate your collaboration until now.
Thanks to the support of all of you, the project desired by the Aguacero team continues to move towards its intended goals, sharing basic knowledge about first aid and bringing water filters to rural and indigenous communities here in Chiapas.
The work schedule for the next three months is almost ready. We have bought the components to make the filters we need for the 20 families of a village in the jungle and we are assembling them in our warehouse.
We also saw with concern the humanitarian emergency that migrants are going through in this part of their way to northern Mexico and we decided to be aware of their needs and also to support by donating ten water filters to local organizations that work here in Chiapas, trying to make their way less painful.
In February, the first first aid course is scheduled in the Pacific Coast region, with ten people of a local cooperative dedicated to fishing and tourism. We are very excited about this.
We were updating ourselves for the workshops and we gave two first aid workshops here in the city of San Cristobal de las Casas, strengthening the local communities in their knowledge to face health adversities.
The staff of Aguacero Tecnologia y Salud Comunitaria is ready to start the challenges of the new year and we are happy because we feel accompanied by all of you.
