16x9-image_320pxOn April 16, the deadliest earthquake in almost a century hit Ecuador.

The Waterbearers, an organization unifying Women, Water and Wisdom, who partnered with Women Network and other organizations to get clean water access to over 320,000 people in 30 days, were the first on the ground within three days to respond to the need for sustainable safe water systems.

We immediately distributed 50 life-saving filters and trained volunteers through our Ecuadorian partner the world class chocolatiers Pacari www.Pacari.com and US based www.WavesForWater.corg. Each filter can provide 100 people with clean water for 10 years with proper usage, or 1 million gallons. Right now we are training more volunteer organizations to go to the rural communities, and supplying them with our life-saving clean water systems, where aid is not reaching them. With your help we will continue to provide these people with clean drinking water, and beyond as we work on sustainable housing to rebuild these communities.

Thanks to money raised through our initial campaign that ran up to March 22 (World Water Day) and our latest campaign, which funnels 100% of all donations to our distribution partner Waves For Water (www.wavesforwater.org) we have over 400 filters in the country, with more on their way! You can see updates and contribute here http://www.thewaterbearers.org/ecuador-earthquake .

Simultaneously, eleven Waterbearers are on their way to Tulum, Mexico to deliver more filters. One of these women is Shelley Greenwald, a Women Network member who became a Waterbearer after watching the International Womens Day live streaming event on March 8th. She quickly surpassed her goal to raise $5000 by March 22nd, and is now part of the first group of Waterbearers entering a certification program to be Travel Team Leaders. These women will lead Women, Water, Wisdom Trips for The Waterbearers across the globe.

The Waterbearers is inspiring women who have access to clean water to get it to those who do not. If you’d like to help, find out more details, become a Waterbearer, go to www.thewaterbearers.org.
