What we need now:

The ability to provide Potable water not just for Tepehua Barrio, which is one of the largest, around 6,000 people that have been counted, many are not,  we also need it for the sister barrios in the vicinity of the North side of Lake Chapala. People and babies are dying from kidney failure due to polluted wells of City water.

Large companies are selling water at a price mothers cannot afford, water and milk are so expensive they buy sodas and wean their babies, causing kidney damage...even by drinking sodas when their baby is still in the protective womb.  This can be sustainable by charging an affordable price per garrafone (5 gallon bottle) and keeping the price low.  We are ready to move on this. We are re-constructing existing buildings on the premises to accommodate Reverse Osmosis filling station.
