WATER FILTERS FOR GUATEMALA
UPDATE: Thanks to our generous donors, in July 2017, we raised enough money to deliver water filters to 100 families in four villages throughout the Panajachel region of Guatemala. Together, we made a difference and we are grateful!
In Guatemala, 97% of rivers are contaminated. The poor of the country who depend on streams and rivers for drinking are left to consume parasite-infested water that wreaks havoc on health. Tragically, this contributes to the death of 1 out of 20 children before the age of 5. With more than half of the population of Guatemala living in poverty, the systemic issues of malnutrition, disease and illiteracy contribute to an ongoing crisis of existence. Kaleidoscope Child Foundation feels called to expand our mission of sustainable living and free education to this area of our world. We have evidence that small, deliberate acts of kindness and tangible care deliver empowering results. In addition to our ongoing schools and life skills programs in Cambodia and India, the Kaleidoscope Child Foundation team now travels this July to launch its global education initiatives in the surrounding villages of Panajachel. We intend to gift a minimum of 100 families in these villages with water filters.
Each filter costs between $60 and $70.
We ask your support in helping us fund this singular goal and we celebrate the dynamic ripple effect of solution this will create! Thank you!
