Con­tours’ Agua Pura Pro­ject

Vacations & Travel - - Global village -

Hav­ing ac­cess to clean, drink­ing water is some­thing we take for granted, but for many, in­clud­ing chil­dren in country ar­eas in Peru, Bo­livia and Ecuador, many have no choice but to drink con­tam­i­nated water. Con­tours Travel sup­ports a number of ini­tia­tives through­out Latin Amer­ica, in­clud­ing Agua Pura. To­gether with the Ro­tary Club of North Mel­bourne, Con­tours Travel has cre­ated the Agua Pura Pro­ject – a com­mu­nity pro­ject that re­lies on do­na­tions made by fel­low trav­ellers, travel agents, and small and large busi­nesses. Agua Pura Pro­ject’s do­na­tions go to­wards buy­ing and send­ing Sawyer Water Fil­ters to local com­mu­ni­ties in Peru pro­vid­ing them with ac­cess to safe drink­ing water. An even bet­ter option is to vol­un­teer to go to the com­mu­ni­ties to dis­trib­ute the water fil­ters, as part of your Con­tours itin­er­ary. con­
