Over the past 20 years, Amigos for Christ has established itself as one of the major participants in alleviating water and sanitation obstacles in the department of Chinandega, Nicaragua. In rural Nicaragua, 69% of families lack access to clean water in their homes. The direct consequence of this on a family’s health is dire. Parasitic infections, kidney disease, and chronic childhood diarrhea contribute to a lower life expectancy and make everyday activities like going to school and work very difficult. We are committed to changing this in rural Nicaragua so that families can live healthy, purpose-filled lives.
2021 Goal: Clean water for 2,000 more people in 6 communities in the department of Chinandega.
185 of the 341 rural communities in the department of Chinandega do not have access to clean water.
