Clean Water for Communities
Thanks to the support of Avianca, Waves for Water continues to provide clean water access to those in need - especially women and children - at schools, clinics and other high-risk areas without access to potable water. The organization identified 10 communities in Nicaragua to target for water filter implementation. Clean Water Couriers, in-country staff, and volunteers created multiple water depots, distributed filters and buckets, and educated local community leaders, medical personnel, and midwives on sanitation and clean water practices, creating a framework to support good health and sanitation throughout each community.
Waves for Water has now carried out five phases of support for communities in Nicaragua over the past two years, reaching more than 100,000 people with access to clean water and sanitation.
- 48 filters and 190 buckets distributed
- 2 tanks set up for water depots
- 10 communities reached
- 28,000 people reached
