Check out this recent article in the LA Times about how new dams constructed in Brazil are negatively affecting communities in the Bolivian Amazon region. Flooding has definitely increased in this area since 2014. Agua Yaku distributed filters to flooded communities in this region in 2014 and 2018.
Many people ask me (Danny) why we focus on clean water. Did you know that over 1,000,000 children under the age of 5 die each year from diarrheal disease that is directly related to drinking contaminated water? The other day I read in a local paper that in Bolivia alone 40 kids a day die […]

We recently sent a team to drill a well in the department of Oruro, high on the altiplano of Bolivia. We have now drilled wells in five of the nine departments of Bolivia. Our primary focus continues to be […]
I took the Crossroads team out to Isosog, a new area where we are just beginning to work.
