Clean Water Project

DSC00013In September 2009 the newest clinic project was launched. Clean water distribution to the El Floron community and surrounding area. The system was built in the USA, shipped down and installed in August. Proceeds from the sale will help with the clinic’s bottom line. Currently the water sales just about equals medical income from the clinic and it provides for two full time employees and one half-time employee. Plans are currently underway to expand the production building in order to make the production semi-automatic (everything on the fill end is currently all manual labor) – thus increasing sales and advancement toward to goal of be self-supporting.
