Initially responding to the 2015 earthquake, Wine To Water continues to work in Nepal to address the ongoing problem of water access. During the earthquake the water table shifted in multiple regions causing many natural springs and well systems to dry up or considerably reduce their production. In many cases this means the only source of water for communities is miles away and potentially contaminated.
Working through well drilling, bio-sand filter production and WaSH education, Wine To Water will continue to build and connect communities in the coming year.
