Good afternoon and greetings from our team here in Guatemala,

We hope this update finds you well. As I write this message, the rains are falling and filling 5 more rainwater harvesting systems each of which will provide the families with water for around 3 days. This year the rainwater harvesting systems were connected to the municipal water line which delivers water through the tap around once or twice a week. This means the tanks will be used year round, even after the rains stop, to provide water for families in need. Attached to this message you will find photos of each of the 5 beneficiary families. Together we thank you for supporting this great project that will help these families for years to come.

Best wishes,

Colleen

Greetings here from our team at Compartiendo Nuestras Bendiciones ONG (Sharing Our Blessings). We hope this update finds you well. Also we are happy to report that the first rainwater harvesting system has been built. This was just in the knick of time as the family has been borrowing water for most of their daily needs. With just a half an hour of heavy rain their new rainwater harvesting system fills up with enough water to last a family of 5 around 2 days or more. The family also received a new water filter so that their water is safe for human consumption. Next week we will begin construction with 2 additional families. Each of the families contribute to the labor involved in building their rainwater harvesting system so that they can have pride and enjoyment in contributing to their family's success. We will keep you updated on this great project and the progress and want to take the time to thank you again for supporting these families.

Wishing you the best,

Colleen Supanich
