The largest portion of the Amazon River and the surrounding rainforest run through Colombia, Peru and Brazil. While the river is the primary water source for many living in this region, it is highly contaminated. In the rainy season, available wells are often covered by rising river water leaving them inaccessible. Wine To Water has also identified more than 400 wells in need of repair in our area of impact.
In the coming year, Wine To Water is drilling 10 new wells and rehabilitating 49 others. When Wine To Water builds and repairs these wells with a well platform construction that raises their access point above the flood level, another 10,000 people will have a permanent water solution.
