Vulnerable families in Guayaquil
Flor de Bastión is a marginalized neighborhood in Guayaquil city where people don’t have access to safe drinking water. In the beginning of 2019 about 150 heads of households with disabled children learned about waterborne diseases at workshops given by our Local Partner. 43 of these families chose water filters to treat their water at home. They received subsidies to purchase those water filters.
