Opening the road to Rio Negro
Dear friends of Agua Pura Para El Pueblo
Rio Negro is a small community in the rugged northern region of Honduras. Recent hurricanes and flooding have devastated much of Central America with major damage and loss of life. In Rio Negro and surrounding communities there have been families swept away, many homes damaged and the local water supplies broken and contaminated. The town is isolated because of flooding and mudslides.
Agua Pura has visited Rio Negro many times and provided water purification supplies and water filters to the families and the school there. Through partner Honduran organizations we are trying to reach the area to bring aid and help to the families. Agua Pura is also raising funds here in the U.S. to send additional water purification supplies and for purchasing local materials in Honduras to rebuild and disinfect their water system. The need is immediate and desperate!
From now through the end of December all funds we raise on GlobalGiving will go to rebuild Rio Negro and its neighbors. Tuesday December 1 is “Giving Tuesday,” and GlobalGiving is adding matching funds on that day for new donations and additional donations from recurring donors. Can you consider an extra, additional donation now or on this Giving Tuesday? As always, 100% of your donations go directly to the families and communities we serve.
Thank you for your generous support in the past, and we hope you will consider helping families in Rio Negro in this season of giving.
