A Human Right for All People
We recently had the opportunity to provide a well in Lago Agrio, Ecuador. The well was not for a small village, family, school, or church. It was for a prison camp of over 600 inmates from all walks of criminal life. The prison camp's primary water source recently ran dry forcing the inmates to use dirty river water being trucked in from nearly 2 kilometers away. The government was unwilling to fund a new well so the dirty river water quickly began to make a majority of the inmates sick from parasites. Our partner on the ground in Ecuador, Inca Link, helped facilitate the project, they did an amazing job. We want to sincerely thank them for all the hard work and compassion they showed throughout this project. Water is a necessity to life and therefore we believe it’s a basic human right for all people, even prisoners.
