HELP US REACH OUR GOAL TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER IN EL SALVADOR

HELP US REACH OUR GOAL TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER IN EL SALVADOR

With over 780 million people around the world who do not have access to clean water, our goal is to change the lives of those in El Salvador by distributing and providing clean water - but we can't do it without your support. There is an estimated 842,000 people dying each year from diseases caused by unclean water, inadequate sanitation, and poor hygiene habits, the majority of which are children in developing countries.

Maybe it's cliché to suggest that not everyone gets to enjoy that warmth, but with the stress and clamour of the holidays, it's easy to push the thought from our minds. That's understandable - we only have so much space in our brains to keep track of the holiday season chaos ... read more

OUR TRIP TO EL SALVADOR: HOW YOU HELPED US CHANGE THE LIVES OF OTHERS

Seeing the pure joy that came from the people we interacted with in El Salvador was so profound - we couldn't thank you enough for all your generous support in making our trip to help change lives a reality. There's an estimated 842,000 people that die each year from diseases caused by unclean water, inadequate sanitation, and poor hygiene habits - the majority of whom are children. Our goal from the start was to be able to distribute and provide clean water for those in need while along the way educating people towards taking preventative measures to keep our world from infectious disease.​ Our Journey Begins Our journey began on March 12th when we arrived in Zacatecoluca, a small town in La Paz. We worked there for four days with Agua Viva (Living Water) to enable accessible clean drinking water for those in the Zacatecoluca communities. Every morning in Zacatecoluca we built 10 bio-sand water ... read more
