Water has to be carried for miles to mountain homes.
While in Guatemala I came across many communities where water had to be carried for miles as there is no ground water available in the mountains. There is no electricity or deep wells or pumps. It rains a lot but the water runs off.
With the help of my host organization, Talita Kumi I was able to get our local Rotary club of Thomaston, CT. to start a project where our club collected $6000 from area clubs and got a matching grant from Rotary International. This money has been sent to Rotary club of Guatemala and Talita Kumi (Fr. George) will be building 50 cisterns for families in a town called San Pedro Tomten.
