Local Pride

Description

The water tank standing on a hill in San Juan, Honduras, is a triumph of assisted local efforts.

The local men who installed the the water tank worked in shifts and many camped at the construction site to complete the work. It took four months to put in the system.

"We built a conduction pipeline to get water to the tank. The spring is 4 kilometers away from the mountain. It goes from the spring, to the tank, then to houses," says Jose Angel Diaz, World Vision manager for water, sanitation, and hygiene in Honduras.

The health department checked the water. “The diseases because of drinking water have decreased to zero percent,” says Jose.

The water tank serves about 135 families, or 750 people, in the valley below.
