A Message From Scott & Wendy McIlquham

Most of us take access to clean water for granted, and it's hard to conceive of places where children spend hours each day fetching water for drinking and washing rather than going to school.

But now we know ... and we also know that the simple addition of a cistern to catch and retain the water from the rainy season can rectify the problem. The decision to pitch in and help is an easy one.

Our first cistern-building trip to north-east Brazil in March 2019 was so eye-opening and inspiring that we are planning another trip in October 2020 to bring reliable access to clean water to even more families.

Please join us - in person, or with a donation. Thank you!

Holston Habitat Global Village Trip

About This Campaign

Global Village Trip - Holston Habitat for Humanity

“Water for Life” Program, Pernambuco state, Brazil
October 2020

This Habitat for Humanity Brazil project aims to improve the quality of life of families who live in extreme poverty and often have to walk for up to two hours to fetch water for their homes. By building cisterns for water catchment and storage, families are provided with access to safe, usable water. 

Volunteer team members will be helping construct cisterns alongside Habitat for Humanity near the city of Caruaru in North East Brazil.

    The trip last March was truly the most rewarding experience we've had in all our travels. Thank you so much to all our generous supporters for making these projects possible.
