#GivingTuesday 2014 Update

Last #GivingTuesday many joined us in helping provide safe drinking water, hygiene education and sanitation to families living in the Trojes, Honduras communities of San Ramon #2 and Santa Rosa. Below is an update on work that has been done, thanks to our generous donors!

Families and individuals have given stories of gratitude, sharing how lives are different today because of incredible generosity. Sonia is one of those individuals…

Sonia lives in San Ramon with her husband and children. She shared that before the project, infections and gastric diseases regularly inflicted their children’s health. Now, they no longer suffer. The filter and hygiene practices have become essential. They offer deepest gratitude to those who supported PWW and their community.
