We continue to deploy our WASH infrastructure programme in Venezuela, thanks to your generous donations.
Water shortages continue to affect many in Venezuela, and when accessible water is often not potable.
With the donation of water tanks and filters we mitigate this problem, by allowing our partners to safely store water to run their programmes continuously, and to potabilise the water they use for cooking and drinking in order to reduce water borne transmissible diseases.
During the last months we have bought 2 cylinder 500L water tanks for the Escuela Niño Jesus de Praga, a school in La Vega Caracas that attends 200 primary school children.
Since January the school has been suffering from an irregular water supply which has put the school operation in jeopardy, forcing them to reduce their teaching schedule to only 2 days a week.
We hope that thanks to the addition of this two water tanks they will be able to resume their normal school schedule and run their school programme 5 days a week.
This is all possible thanks to your generous donations.
