Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing water supply to children and their families. This reporting period we are able to provide steady supply of water to a remote village and in this case we expanded their vegetable gardening activities in order to provide steady food supply now that food is getting scarce because of the problem of Coronavirus affecting wide areas here. The food we are providing to farmers they pay in small amounts so that we will be able to purchase seeds for distribution to additional growers. We are able to support the food needs of 75 farming families in this manner.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing water for children and their families. Water is a human right and we are worried because the supply of water is getting scarcer everyday. There is a need to protect watersheds and other sources of water in order to maintain sustainable supply. This reporting period being the end of the year, we conducted community visits and small group meetings with local communities in order to assess their needs for water and sanitation so tha we are able to plan out carefully our actions for the next year. Aside from the conduct of assessments, we also provided a few toilets to some of the very poor in our communities. In total we provided 15 toilets from generous donations locally. We are doing this because there is a close link between access to water and the provision of sanitation facilities.
Greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing water supply for children and their families. Water is becoming a scarce commodity and our expertise is in constructing large rainwater harvesters as well as gravity-fed water using polyethylene pipes. We also install water pumps in areas where the water table is high and digging a water well is feasible. This reporting period we are able to provide 3 families with simple and cheap pitcher pumps and they provided their own labor in digging the well. This is a cheap solution and very easy to do and hope that you will provide additional support to us. We aim to provide 50 water pumps until the end of this year.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous donation to our project providing much-needed water for children and their families. Poor families in remote barrios here have been hit hard by the long dry season caused by the El Nino phenomenon. Water has been very scarce and community residents walk long miles in order to get water. Now that the rains has started to fall, we provided a barrio with 75 families with a large rainwater harvester made of concrete. They will be using this in order to store water especially from the rain. This is important and can save them long hours of heavy work. The water they can use for their daily needs and the excess they can use for their gardening activities.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing water supply for children and their families. This reporting period we anticipated the occurrence of severe drought caused by El Nino so we decided to install giant water bladders in areas where water is lacking. We were fortunate to get some donations of giant 10,000-liter capacity water bladders from an international NGO and we put this to good use. When water supply will be very low, the water bladder will be able to supply the needs of a community here with water for their drinking needs only and no longer for washing and bath which they have to do by walking long distances. We are very happy about this development and we will try to replicate them in other areas.
