I am a housewife who feels sadness every day to see how the water leaves us. We have had weeks without water because of the shortage of it. I prefer not to have electricity, but to have water in the house.

Plans for the construction of the new potable water system is an urgent need, not only because it will provide us with plenty of water, but also quality. And most importantly, it will reduce parasitic and unhealthy diseases.

Opening the tap of the house and seeing that the water is getting smaller every time, causes despair. It is a sense of helplessness, but at the same time of reflection, so that we promote the care of the environment, otherwise we are undermining our own grave.

To realize a new potable water system that ensures us clean water, we need you to join this project, and continue to collaborate with us. And let our voice be with other people, so that together we can offer a better world.

¡Together we can do the difference!

The water management board of El Pital strongly believes in strategic alliances for the long-term sustainability of the water system. That is why he meets with government organizations that work in the field of forest and water care.

Constant meetings are held to address the issue of easement permits for the construction of the new potable water system, as well as deforestation and the negative effects it is having on water sources, and work is being done on an environmental protection plan , which ensures that you have water in quantity, and quality.

These meetings also address the issue of health, and how to work prevention through cleaning and garbage collection campaigns, among others.

According to statistical data from the health center of El Pital, parasitic and respiratory diseases have decreased, as well as dengue, malaria, chikungunya and zika, as a result of the prevention work that is being carried out.

All these activities require a budget, and the success achieved would not be possible without the contribution of many people. That is why we invite you to continue collaborating to improve the living conditions of these communities.

The quality of the water is conditioned to many factors, within these, the control of the garbage.

It is for this reason that the water management board is leading cleaning activities and good waste management, to avoid water contamination.

Testimony of two members of the water management board:

Testimony 1.

As a community leader it is our responsibility to ensure quality water. That is why we work in cleaning campaigns. In addition, this helps to reduce the presence of the mosquito transmitter of dengue, malaria, chikungunya, zika. That is to say that with the same activity we are dealing with several problems.


Testimony 2.

As president of the water management board, we believe that our role should not only focus on the specific water issue, but also to be able to address all those aspects that make water quality decrease, such as garbage.

Our work is not limited to carrying out only the cleaning campaign, but also educating the population on how to ensure clean water.


All this impact we are having on the quality of life, through offering clean water, and quality health, would not be possible without your valuable support and collaboration.

We invite you to continue supporting our program, and to share with your friends the positive impact we are having. Together we can make a difference in the lives of many.

Building a sustainable path

Water is life... that is why it is necessary to ensure a sustainable project that guarantees quality water in abundance.

In February 2019, two engineers specializing in water and basic sanitation visited, who made a thorough design review to lower costs and ensure that the driving system will provide water to all homes in El Pital. The results were presented to the community, and work is now being done on the permits for the passage of the pipeline through the properties, with whom an agreement will be signed.

The success of the project is based on the construction of local capacities, with the strong participation of the water management board and the community in general.

Testimony of Engineer:

We have worked on project designs for many years in various regions of the country, but none have the bases and structure like this one of El Pital, which includes a pedagogical and training process for the beneficiaries, which ensures long-term sustainability and empowers key actors. A project that includes micro projects of basic and environmental sanitation, something that should never be separated from the water issue.

We continue to transform positive changes thanks to you who has been part of our collaborators, through your individual donations. We hope you will continue to accompany us in these transformations of life.
