Sumando Manos News!

 

Dear Friends:

We are in the year 2017 and still today, there are thousands of children around the world who have no water to drink, cook or sanitize. 

 

 

 

 

For children in rural schools and border areas, access to safe drinking water is synonymous to health; water is transformative and can change their lives. It is still our goal to provide them with the opportunity to have better health, education and more possibilities to develop. This task can only be achieved together.

 

Next, we share the report of projects and achievements of the months of April, May and June of this year, so that we can celebrate the minor and great achievements.  

Thank you for joining hands and getting help to so many kids!
