The study made by the INEI (national institute of statistics and informatics) in 2017 in native communities (jungle and Andean mountain), showed that the most frequent diseases that affect these communities are diarrhea and vomiting and malnutrition/anemia and parasites.
The main cause of these diseases is the lack of water. The goal of this project is to provide chlorinated water as well as to coordinate with the health centers so in the future they provide the chlorine.
How the project will meet this needs:
Because to provide chlorinated water to native communities will allows them to improve their personal hygiene and prevent diseases, it will definitely improve people health.
Continuous water will allow them to make a better breeding and cultivation of plants, on a small scale, for their own consumption.
This project will take arround 8 to 12 months, the main activities are:
1. Identification of the 2 communities in the jungle region of Perú with the highest incidence of diseases related to lack of water
2. Coordination with community representatives
3. Orientation about Health and personal hygiene
4. Meeting/Training about the community project
5. Technical studies, to verify the most appropriate location for drilling the water well
6. Drilling and enabling well with solar pumping system
7. Build an elevated tank, that allows the community to carry the water to strategic points: School, health center, and 4 additional points in the community
8. Training about how to use the equipment
9. Delivery of the project to the community
The Project funds will be used to:
Identification the native community with highest needs of water, Technical studies to verify the most appropriate location for drilling the water well,
Drilling and enabling well with solar pumping system
Manufacture of an elevated tank, that allows the community to carry the water to strategic points: School, health center, communal dining rooms, and 4 additional points in the community
