Nicaragua

Completed: 2002

The Water Team again ran in World Vision’s Fun Run in Vancouver B.C. and we raised enough money to build a water well in Nicaragua.

In 2002 we built a water well at a school in Nicaragua through World Vision. In 2003 we started to sponsor a child in that village – so we would have a connection to the village and be able to followup the progress of the water well. Ezequiel Sequerira Salgado (born in 1993).

Each year we communicate several times and until 2010, there were no problems with the well.  In 2010 there developed a problem with the pump.  But after a new part was bought and installed, the report came back from Ezequiel that everything is working well again, and the school once again has clean accessible water.
