Rotary Grant Supports Clean Water in Peru

Six communities in and around Lima, Peru are in the process of receiving clean water systems thanks to a $42,000 global grant awarded by the Rotary International Foundation to the Rotary Club Lima Sunrise in partnership with Living Waters for the World (LWW).

The Rotary grant addresses a huge need in a country where an estimated 40 percent of the population lacks access to clean water. The funds, to be administered by the Rotary Club Lima Sunrise, are earmarked to purchase hardware for six sustainable water systems, site preparation costs and some of the planning costs.
