In Oaxaca, Mexico, Living Water International staff are helping communities bring clean water straight to their homes. Working through the local church and community organizers, hygiene promoters train volunteers in the community to teach life-saving hygiene and sanitation lessons to their neighbors. (Living Water)
Extreme poverty forces Dionila Pasos, a single mother of seven, to live and work in a garbage dump near Oaxaca, Mexico. But today, Dionila and her kids have safe, clean water pumped right into their home, thanks to Living Water International.
Dionila drinks clean water, showers after work, washes her hands before eating, and shares life-saving hygiene lessons with neighbors through her Community Health Club.
Their lives have been transformed, but so many marginalized families like Dionila’s are still waiting for hope.
You can help! Just $25 can offer water to a family like Dionila’s. Save lives and restore dignity here
