More Information on the Cause:
While in Nicaragua, PHFM Executive Director, Peter Coleman took the team to visit some drinking water wells in nearby villages that were experiencing contamination issues. We were able to take a rough sample of the water for testing. The testing revealed non-compliance with our EPA standards and the presence of lead, copper, iron and manganese. We know all too well the impacts of heavy metals in drinking water. In effort to improve access to decontaminated drinking water, we are looking to partner with Rotary as part of their Global Grant program to raise money to provide a solar-powered advanced filtration unit for the villages.
