A community tap can help provide children like Caralis Martínez Picado with a permanent, reliable source of clean water.
As well as preventing sickness, it can save hours of back-breaking work fetching water from sources miles away.
A gift such as this can transform a whole community. The Community Movement of Matagalpa in Nicaragua has made a huge difference to many people’s lives already: it could transform many more.
With a clean water supply, crops can be watered and new varieties grown; animals can grow stronger and healthier; and small businesses can spring into life. Using a gift like a community tap, a community can enjoy better health, improved farms and a brighter future.
