Thanks to YOU -- we've reached our funding goal for the Clean Water and Light for the Andes project!  Having clean, fresh drinking water and light at night is life-changing for the people of the poorest areas of the Andes and they are grateful that you chose to support them.  

As Mother Theresa said, “ It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into the giving”. The people of the Andes have felt your love…and thank you. 

Since a picture is “worth a thousand words”, please enjoy seeing for yourself the difference your donations have made.

Clean water is becoming a reality for families in the Andes mountains of Peru!  During the first week of April, we embarked on installing a test system for bringing clean water directly to peoples' homes!  With help from Path of the Heart, we installed water tanks to collect mountain stream water for ten families in one of the communities of Patacancha.  Residents contributed their labor and dug trenches so that we could install piping from the water source directly to their homes.  Normally, the families in these communities walk over 1/2 hour each way to get water, which they bring home in jugs.  Now the water is brought directy to their homes!  We installed high level microbial filters at each house so that disease causing giardia, ecoli and salmonella are filtered out and residents have pure potable water!  Now that the system has been tested, we have plans to install this type of filtration to hundreds more communities in the Andes Mountains of Peru.  We need your CONTINUED SUPPORT to acheive this goal!  Gracias!

Airline Ambassdors has partnered with Path of the Heart to enhance the support we can bring to our friends in Peru.  With your help, we continue to work for clean water and light & also bring Holiday Cheer to these deserving people.  Here is a report from Washi at Path of the Heart:

Dearest GlobalGiving Supporters, 
In the Andes of Peru, we are getting ready for a fabulous celebration for our native communities and all the amazing families with Path Of The Heart.  Over the past 21 years we have delivered 119,000 cups of hot chocolate and sweet bread (Panettone) and a small gift to approximately 5,000 children in 45 communiities.
**
This year we will expand our services to the families suffering from the harsh reality of Covid-19 pandemic.  We will have safety procedures as we bring Holiday Cheer during four days of service.
***
Because of your support we raised $1,430.00 on Giving Tuesday that will augment this effort!
*** 
We thank you SO MUCH for your willingness to support us in making  our Christmas celebration a successful event in all levels.
We send our love and energy always back to you and send warm Holiday Wishes.  Gracias y Felice Navidad!
MMM,,MMM good!
MMM,,MMM good!

We are thrilled to announce that our water filter project is coming to fruition. On September 23, a team of volunteers from the United States will be meeting our Peruvian team on the ground in Cusco, Peru. There, they will meet with the Cusco Rotary, who will be accepting a donation of 48 double filter water units. Together, for the next 3 days, they will meet the families of three communities and install water filters in their homes. Communities we will service:

9/25 - Patacancha

9/26 - Challhua Ccocha

9/27 - Chupani

 These communities are located high in the Andes Mountains and do not have access to electricity or other modern conveniences. We will use horses to bring the filters to communities, and camp at night in the mountains. Families live in one-room stone homes with dirt floors and rely on water from local streams to drink. This water is contaminated with bacteria such as e.coli and salmonella and causes makes them ill. Thanks to your generosity, we will be able to help these families have access to clean, potable water!
