Arsenic Removal – Renacer Orphanage

Arsenic from Water

When we visited Hogar Renacer Orphanage, a home for 37 children in Cofradia, Honduras, the directors told us children were getting sick and they suspected bacteria in the water. But when we tested their water for bacteria, we found something else. Arsenic, at four times the allowable level.

We helped them to shift immediately to bottled water, agreeing to cover $200.00 a month to buy safe drinking water until we installed a water filtration system that filtered out both arsenic and bacteria.
