Clean Water Well in Remote Shipibo Community
The Peruvian Amazon Indigenous Support Network has completed another clean water well in Roya, a remote Shipibo community, with the help of local well drillers from Living Water. Thank you to our donors and local partners who have helped get this community clean drinking water!

Unfortunately the rivers nearby are no longer clean because of oil contamination and other upstream pollutants.
