Access to Clean Water

La Isla Network takes its name from the sugarcane worker community, La Isla, in Nicaragua. Tragically, so many men have died of CKDu that locals call it ‘La Isla de Viudas,’ or The Island of Widows. The community’s water system fell into disrepair last year forcing the local population to use surface water for their household needs, including for drinking. The lack of current access to potable water is placing an already vulnerable population at risk of water-borne diseases. LIN is currently working with community leaders to develop a sustainability plan to ensure resources are available for future repairs and maintenance needs.

Funds raised will cover costs of repairing the community’s water system to 100% capacity. We will also be working with a new generation of exceptional leaders from La Isla who have the university education and administrative ability to ensure a sustainable community initiative to maintain the water system.
