We hope you have had as wonderful a start to the new year as possible, given the ongoing epidemic, and are staying safe, wherever you are.
This newsletter covers the recent handwashing station project we have assisted with in Navajo native American communities in the U.S., as well as spotlighting our new board member, Liz Tierney.
In connecting with other non-profits that work in the Nation, we learned that Navajo residents typically live in multi-generational homes. Approximately 30% of residents do not have access to plumbed water inside their homes, and many use community wells to fulfill their household water needs. This sometimes requires them to travel more than 40 miles. A Vision for Clean Water has made it our 2020-2021 mission to assist these vulnerable residents by reducing the potential for virus transmission at these water gathering locations.
