GHP has launched a new program, in collaboration with H20OpenDoors, to install water purification units throughout Nicaragua. In July, our first unit was installed at the Hospital Nuevo Amanecer in Puerto Cabezas on Nicaragua’s Atlantic Coast. The unit is providing the community, which has limited access to drinkable water, with 20,000 liters of purified water every day.
A second unit will be installed at Hospital Siuna in Las Minas, another community on the Atlantic Coast with limited drinking water. We’re hoping to expand this program over the next year, installing as many as a dozen units throughout Nicaragua at key Ministry of Health facilities.
