The El Jaral, Honduras project includes a water filtration system with tanks, manifolds and purification equipment which provides a minimum of 5,760 gallons of clean water per day. More than 5400 people each year benefit from the clean water this provides.The water system was placed at the only medical clinic within many hours; providing for adults, children, births and surgeries. It serves both Hondurans and Guatemalans. Before the system went in, water is available about 6 hours a day, but was contaminated and often a brown color. The number one cause of childhood mortality in the Copan area is from intestinal problems, caused by parasites in unclean water. We are in the process of acquiring the equipment and beginning the foundation for the system.
Quenching Well began only eight short months ago. Our dream and vision are clear - raise funds to provide clean water with the opportunity to learn about Christ.
We appreciate your continued support (did you know you can sign up for a reoccurring tax deductible monthly donation under our website in the donation section?). We are working on our next project and hope you will join us!
