Date: March 2021
Location: Paraje “La Peligrosa”, Tres Isletas, Province of Chaco.
Issue: On this occasion, the family selected to provide access to safe water was that of Cinthia Gamarra. This house is made up of 15 members, 12 of whom are minors. The nearest water source is a well, which is located one kilometer walking distance from the house.
Solution: Building a cistern that accumulates up to 16,000 liters of rainwater to supply Cinthia’s family. This model has the advantages of ensuring access to water for human consumption and promoting local labor. It is a work that takes a week of hard work. To begin with, the family must dig the well where the cistern will be built following the indications of the professionals. Then, contracted professionals will follow with the help of at least one family member.
Current situation: The cistern was completed on March 1, 2021, providing access to safe water for 1 families. Now 15 people do not have to walk to fetch water unfit for human consumption.
We believe that this action is the beginning of a better quality of life.
We will visit them to tell us about the transformation that having access to water just a few meters from their home has given them.
