Peru

        Since 2003, Humphrey Blackburn has been working with House of the Children to help bring safe water to indigenous communities in the Manu region of Peru. Starting in the community of Huacaria where an existing water system was renovated and brought up to US standards of performance, HOTC has moved on to three other increasingly remote communities to bring safe water and sanitation to the inhabitants. This inlcudes the revolutionary geombrane tanks which made these later projects possible in such remote areas.
