What does W|W do in Colombia?

_V2A5128.jpg

In the Amazonian region of Colombia where Wine To Water primarily works, many wells have been drilled, but have since broken down or been made inaccessible by flooding. Since Wine To Water Colombia's inception, then, our primary focus has been to rehabilitate these wells so that they are accessible year-round, and durable for many years to come. In the past five years, Wine To Water has helped more than 18,000 people in Colombia access clean water. Currently, we are repairing 49 wells in more than 20 communities and providing sanitation and hygiene education to the members of those communities. While expanding the well rehabilitation process even further beyond these communities, we are introducing Sawyer Filters to households, and keeping a steady focus on educating people in the region on sanitation and hygiene. This education is what truly lays the foundation of sustainability, propagating clean water knowledge for future generations.
