CMT Clean Water Project

Catholic Mission Trips is excited to report the completion of our first Clean Water Project in Bolivia!

The Huamuni River in Bolivia has been used by mining companies as a place to drain contaminated water for years. Unfortunately, that contaminated water is washed downstream and has contaminated land and water supplies for the local people. In response to growing conflict over environmental degradation and public health problems, the Government of Bolivia in 2009 declared an emergency zone in the Huanuni watershed (a first in Bolivian history).

Through your generous support, we were able to send a used truck mounted water drilling rig to Bolivia to help the villagers downstream have relief from contaminated water. Cost to purchase a drilling rig, ship it to Bolivia, and train the local people how to use it was around $50,000 – $60,000 US dollars.  Email Steve if you would like to see a more detailed report on our Bolivian Water Project.  steve@catholicmissiontrips.net

Thank you for your donations to our Bolivian Clean Water Project!
