Project Report C11 - Cheryl & Lucassen

 

Cheryl and Lucassen used to haul water from a dangerous windmill nearby for their two young kids. Not anymore.

Welcome to Northwestern New Mexico, just off of Route 66 near the Continental Divide. Cheryl and Lucassen's family of four call this beautiful place home. 
 
Unlike most families, Cheryl, Lucassen, and their kids have always struggled to get enough clean water to do basic things like take a bath or cook a meal. 

But not any more.

All of that changed when you and DIGDEEP brought this family running water for the first time ever.

We've prepared this report to show you your impact. Let's get started!

 

Project Report C13 - Carrie

 

Carrie turned 74 as we were installing running water in her home for the first time ever.

Carrie has lived here her entire life in rural New Mexico, and she has never had running water. She has struggled to get enough clean water to do basic things like take a bath or cook for her grandchildren.

But not any more.

A few weeks ago DIGDEEP brought Carrie running water for the first time ever.

This is #4Liters: Installing Lindsey Johnson's System

 

After taking the #4Liters challenge last year and getting a taste of what it's like to live in water poverty, R.J. Aguiar wanted to see firsthand how those without access to clean water do it everyday.

So he joined us on a trip for the #NavajoWaterProject where he helped us install a water system for Lindsey and Brenda Johnson! 

RJ's mind was BLOWN after seeing for himself the challenges and sacrifices so many people have to make Every. Single. Day. What happens when the water barrels run dry and you don't know when they will be refilled? Watch this moving and super informative video that follows RJ's life changing trip to find out:
