High rates of poverty translate to low levels of access to basic resources such as adequate clean water and sanitation. Poverty levels are above 70% in the indigenous areas of Panama, known as comarcas.
In collaboration with our in-country partner, Nicholas, water system renovations are underway for the small community of Alto Mann Creek, located in the Comarca Ngöbe-Buglé of Panama. This project includes a renovated spring capture, a new storage tank, and distribution to 29 homes.
Upon completion, this renovated water system will positively impact over 140 lives!
