As you prepare to celebrate the holidays and bring in a new year, know that our team is celebrating YOU! Your continued and generous support empowers children and their families, living in underserved communities of Haiti and Honduras, with the lasting foundation for a much healthier, more hopeful future.
“Having the filter is like the same thing as buying purified water because we are drinking purified water!”
– Rosa Rodríguez, El Onal, Honduras (pictured)
Rosa and her family live in the remote, mountainous Honduran community of El Onal, located near the Nicaraguan border. Rosa’s family has always had access to water at their home, piped from a nearby stream. However, access to water does not translate into access to safe water. Having long suffered from intestinal distress due to waterborne illnesses, this year Rosa’s family participated in safe water and hygiene education trainings and received a biosand water filter from PWW. Their intestinal complications soon disappeared. Now celebrating good health and financial savings, they look forward to a brighter future!
Ancient Greek poet, Pindar, was quoted saying, “Water is the best of all things!”
In fact, water is our most essential element for life.
The latest report from the World Health Organization shows only 19% of families living in rural Honduras have access to safely managed water. Take a look around your neighborhood and try to imagine that in 4 out of every 5 of your neighbor’s homes, families do not have reliable access to safe water. It’s hard to believe, yet this is life in rural Honduras and Haiti. Your generous support changes this staggering reality!
We have a goal to raise $150,000 by December 31st to scale-up our proven programs and empower more families, like Rosa’s, with the best of all things … reliable access to safe water, sanitation and essential hygiene education. Will you invest in the health and future of families with a holiday gift of $75 or more?

Thank you for being our partner in this critical mission.
Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday season.
