Colombian Landslide - April 2017

Many of you supported Water Ambassadors Canada in our relief efforts in Haiti and Ecuador last year, and there is now an urgent need for WAC to help in Southern Colombia as well.

On April 1 in Mocoa, Colombia, a huge landslide of mud, rocks and gushing waters swept away homes and cars and killed 254 people. Colombia has issued a state of emergency, identifying safe water as the top priority. WAC has recently established an active partnership in Northern Colombia, and we want to continue supporting our Colombian friends by providing clean water and helping them rebuild their communities after this recent disaster.

Once again, we are working with our partners at WaterStep to respond to this immediate need. WaterStep is currently in Colombia, mobilizing safe water treatment centers and training local NGOs. Their simple yet effective technology is providing clean, safe water—as well as hope and security—for people whose lives have been turned upside down by this disaster.

Please help us provide access to safe water and sanitation for our friends in Colombia by donating today.
