VCF has again been asked to supply our friends in the Iquitos area of Peru with more clean water filters.....due to heavy and early rains in the Apu's ( mountains), the Amazon and tributaries are extremely high, already destroying many villages.
On one of our journey there, we met a man who had spent 20 years digging wells with the communities, he found every well had been drowned by the river.
The problem is due to all the run off and debris which has polluted the water, making it undrinkable.
PLease consider donating....$55. gives one family clean water for 5-6 years!
Just go to the donations page to DONATE!!
In 2006, VCF, Inc. promised Don Manuel Quispe to help his people in the high Q'ero villages have clean water. Finally this year, 2013, we have completed that first and last of many goals. VCF, Inc. has finally completed it's final committment made to Don Manuel! Every Q'ero family who requested a clean water filter was delivered a filter that is easy to use, fairly unbreakable, and will last five to six years!
Story of the journey and photos are coming soon.
Thank you very much to all who donated to make this happen! You have helped the health of an entire community!!!
