Quebrada Verde

This village was the first to receive help from Water for Kids. 1999 saw the completion of the project where a safe water supply was provided for the 1,000 residents of the squatter village in the country's coastal desert area. Up until then, the only source of water was a single well that was contaminated with a variety of diseases. This project was completed in conjunction with OACA a Peruvian Non-Governmental Organisation.


On behalf of Water for Kids a full-time volunteer, Scott Grant, worked with Peruvian health professionals to provide means for villagers of Pucallpa to make their drinking water safe. The project was successfully completed in the spring of 2004 and handed over to the control of "Salud Para el Pueblo" which continues to work towards improving the sanitation and health of the people of Pucallpa.
