We have pinpointed two difficult-to-reach tribal indigenous villages with critical need in Ecuador's Amazon Basin where people are suffering from illness directly related to poor drinking water.
We will deploy 2 water purification systems in these areas of critical need in partnership with Renewable Hope (renewablehope.org).
How You Can Help
We are seeking supporters who can help by providing the following funds...
One $750 gift - This gift will allow us to purchase two tanks that will be used to store the safe water for locals to drink from for years to come.
One $500 gift - This gift will cover the fees associated with transporting water purification systems in-country via airport luggage.
One $300 gift - This gifts will allow for the purchase of important, unanticipated equipment and tools that are needed during installation and beyond.
Four $250 gifts - These gifts will provide funding for infrastructure modifications and improvements for the selected sites. Infrastructure is virtually non-existent in these areas. Therefore, setting up proper systems for the delivery of water is crucial.
Twelve $100 gifts - These gifts will cover air travel for one of our water purification system installers to properly train and assist locals with the on-site installation of water purification systems. These trainees will then be able to train and install other water purification systems locally.
Twenty-five $50 gifts - This gift will help assist with the purchase of water filtration systems that will remove particles and sediment from the water before it is disinfected.
One hundred $25 gifts - These gifts will provide locals with the electricity necessary to run the water purification systems (solar panels, controllers, and batteries). Electricity is scarce in the Amazon Basin, but sunlight is abundant, so we will be relying on solar power.
Two-hundred fifty $10 gifts - These gifts will help us cover the costs of the water purification systems that disinfects the water to remove harmful bacteria and viruses. Instead of drinking contaminated water filled with rat hair, children and adults alike will be given access to safe water that will transform their lives forever.
