Ecuador: Bringing in water


3.2 million people in Ecuador's rural areas do not have access to safe drinking water. "My husband used to spend most of the day carrying 30 tanks of water for our family's use and for the cattle," says Helen Solòrzano Bravo, a mother of 10 from Junin canton, one of many regions where villagers have worked together to install and manage their own water systems with the support of the MDG-F. "When the project arrived and we saw water here in the yard of our house, we felt it was a blessing from God."
