Safe Drinking Water in Remote areas in Argentina / Agua Potable en Areas Remotas en Argentina

Dear Friends,

We have implemented successfully the first safe drinking water project  in school Nº 239 “PEDRO INCHAUSPE”, in Pampa del Indio, Chaco.(pictures enclosed). 

A 2100 cubic feet tank was installed with its respective pumps and pipes, providing drinking water to enable the children to have drinking and cooking water and even to irrigate a new small farm.

Contaminated water and lack of drinkable water are recurring problems in the schools of Chaco, impeding the healthy development of the children. Schools located in remote areas serves as a great contention for the kids, especially because attendance to class ensures them to receive their daily meal. In many instances children live so far away, they have to walk miles to attend school, even sleeping several nights a week in the classroom.

School Nº 239 “PEDRO INCHAUSPE”, at Pampa del Indio is also part of the “Breakfast for a child” program and this water installation allows us to further improve their quality of life.

Thank you very much for helping with donations and for trusting us to be the liaison between the children and yourselves.

Queridos Amigos,

Hemos implementado exitosamente la instalación de la planta de agua en la escuela Nº 239 “PEDRO INCHAUSPE”, de Pampa del Indio, Chaco.

Un tanque de 60,000 litros ha sido instalado con sus respectivas bombas y cañerías para el abasteciendo de agua potable para que los niños puedan beber, y los responsables en la escuela cocinar y mantener la nueva huerta que se creó.

El problema del agua contaminada y la falta de agua potable son  problemas críticos en las escuelas de la provincia del Chaco, lo que imposibilita el sano desarrollo de los niños.

Las escuelas rurales sirven de contención a los niños ya que en ellas los reciben su alimentación diaria. Muchos niños deben caminar varias horas para llegar a clase y a veces deben dormir en la misma escuela por la distancia que hay hacia sus casas.

La escuela Nº 239 “PEDRO INCHAUSPE”, de Pampa del Indio también es parte del programa “Por el desayuno de un niño”, y esta instalación de agua permite mejorar su calidad de vida.

Agradecemos el apoyo de todos los que han donado para este proyecto y la confianza en nuestra organizacion para ser un nexo  entre ustedes y los niños.

Atentamente
