As the rainy season in Bolivia gets into full swing, Mano a Mano’s water projects are beginning to fill with water. Last week Mano a Mano Nuevo Mundo staff flew over our Laguna Sulty water project en route to another project and took aerial photos of the reservoir that is full!

The Laguna Sulty reservoir was completed in 2008 and has provided a consistent supply of water to the local community, which has improved the quality and yields of farmers’ harvests.
