Clean Water for Isla de Leon!

In May 2017, we built 10 homes for families living in slum conditions in Isla de Leon, Cartagena.

These 10 families now have a roof, a floor, and a locking door. We came together to provide a better quality of life for the community- but while there, we learned about another important need: access to clean water.

Help us raise $4,000 to provide clean water to the families and children of Isla de Leon!

With clean water, the families in the community of Isla de Leon will have better health and sanitation, and can focus on what's next: education, employment, and better health. 

Before, the neighborhood looked like this: 


 After the homes were built: 


Now, let's help ensure the children of Isla grow up healthy and strong.  


After funds are raised, they will be put to use by the nonprofit on the ground to implement clean water programs and ensure these families have access to clean water for the coming year. 

Together we can make sustainable, long-term change. 

THANK YOU!
