Some of Nicaragua’s most impoverished and remote communities lie along the Rio Grande de Matagalpa and these isolated villages struggle to survive in the face of illness, flood, privation and lack of medical care. Although myriad concerns plague these marginalized communities, we have begun to address their most fundamental need: safe drinking water.
In February of 2015, we worked with the small village of Kansas City to install two community wells and initiate a health-training program. As funding permits, we plan to continue our work in other villages along the river and install eight wells a year over the next three years, eventually providing clean water to as many as 20 river communities.
