Location: Paraje “Lalelay”, Tres Isletas, Province of Chaco.
Issue: On this occasion, the family selected to provide access to safe water was that of Rocio Gonzalez. This household is made up of ten members, four of whom are minors and one of whom suffers from ocular neoplasia. The nearest water source is a 14 meter well, which is located on the land but is consumed quickly as it is shared with 10 neighboring families.
Solution: Building a cistern that accumulates up to 16,000 liters of rainwater to supply Rocío’s family and neighboring families. 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 start with, the family must dig the well where the cistern will be built following the indications of the professionals. the professional’s indications. Then, contracted professionals will follow with the help of at least one family member.
Current situation: The cistern was completed on October 11, 2022, providing access to safe water for 1 family. Now 12 people do not have to walk to get water.
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.
