Help provide clean drinking water to 60,000 people in Nicaragua


"A founding principle of Watersurplus was the recognition that there exists significant unrealized value in surplus water treatment equipment that should be repurposed to help provide water to areas of the world where safe drinking water is in short supply. For over twenty years we have worked with our global partners to repurpose idle assets into engineered systems for water reuse and potable water plants.

In EOS International we found a partner to help further this cause. As a result of our shared vision, I am proud to announce that we have teamed with EOS International and set a goal of raising $18,000.00 to help provide clean drinking water to 60,000 people in Nicaragua. I strongly encourage you to read the story below and I thank you in advance for joining our cause."

Watersurplus and EOS International are both passionate about providing clean water to communities across the world. Over the next few months, we are thrilled to be partnering in an effort to bring clean drinking water to rural communities in Nicaragua.

A recent study performed by the Nicaraguan Ministry of health showed that over 85% of rural Nicaragua water systems are contaminated with bacteria, a problem that can be fixed by treating the water with chlorine. There are thousands of Nicaraguan communities where the basic water system lacks any treatment, meaning children are constantly sick, and at times die from completely preventable illness caused by unsafe water.

EOS has partnered with another non-profit, CTI, to promote and install the CTI-8 Water Chlorinator, which is an effective, affordable, and low-maintenance device that fits onto existing water systems to treat the water source. Since 2012, EOS has installed water chlorination systems in over 250 communities, providing more than 130,000 people with clean drinking water.

But there are thousands more that still do not have a clean water source.

With your support, our goal is to provide clean drinking water to another 60,000 people in the next 12 months. We need to raise $1,500 a month, or a total of $18,000 through this campaign, to achieve this goal. It is astonishing how much good can be done with this low cost solution!

  • $25Provide 3 months of chlorine tablets for a community
  • $50Assess a new community for potential installation
  • $100Materials for a water chlorinator and 5 months of chlorine tablets
  • $500Provide clean water for a new community (up to 1,000 people)
  • $1,500Provide clean water for 3 new communities (up to 3,000 people)

Every $0.50 donated provides clean water to one person, so every gift makes a big impact!
