Agua Pura is happy to announce plans for its latest service trip. From July 7th through the 22nd, 2012 we will traveling and working in Mexico with our local partner Amextra, The Mexican Association For Rural and Urban Transformation. Agua Pura has worked for several years with their organization promoting clean water and sanitation and will be returning to continue our programs with them.
This year we will be visiting our ongoing projects in Mexico City and Palenque in Chiapas as well as new programs in San Cristobal De Las Casas and Oaxaca, Mexico. We will be giving workshops to local organizations and heath professionals on current methods of water testing and purification. We’ll also be giving demonstrations in local communities on simple methods that families can use to make their water safe to drink. Agua Pura also provides testing materials and Water Pasteurization Indicators (WAPI’s) free of charge.
WAPI’s are simple reusable devices that show when water has been heated enough to have killed all dangerous organisms. They save lives in developing countries with unsafe water and are also useful here for camping and emergency preparedness. Read more about WAPI’s by scrolling down our website. If you want to purchase one for $5.00 for your own use and to help support our work, click on our “donate” button or send a check to Agua Pura Para El Pueblo at 15035 SE Monner Road, Happy Valley, Oregon 97086.
