Dear supporters,

We just quickly wanted to let you know that June 13th is a Bonus Day - this means that donations to our project will be matched by additional 50% on this day. This makes your donation even more effective and helps us to reach out to even more people every day.

During my last visit to the project, I witnessed that important changes are taking place, and sometimes at unexpected places. For example, I was astonished to find that in one school in Tiquipaya, the most commited person was actually the secretary, Ines Salazar. She is a very energetic person and has voluntarily taken on the task of overseeing the healthy practices which are promoted by the project - to disinfect drinking water and to wash hands. "I think that it is very important that children learn about healthy habits at school, because it is here where they acquire knowledge and habits which serve them their whole life."

We agree very much with Ines - how about you?

Best regards in the name of the whole project team,

Matthias Saladin
