1. WATER FOR SUGAR: Support Corporate Social Responsibility, Pure Water, and Public Health!

Do you want to support social responsibility for sugar cane workers in Nicaragua? If you have a sweet-tooth, and want to show your support for poor Nicaraguan campesinos who labor in extreme heat to produce sugar and other sugar cane based products for local and international consumption, then support this petition!!!

People living and working in western Nicaragua, Guanacastal Sur sectors of La Isla, el Triunfo, Sector Gonzalez, Paises Bajos, and Santana do not have access to pure drinking water. Many suffer and die from chronic kidney disease (CKD) and other illnesses that may be related to consumption of contaminated water. Those who suffer most are the sugar cane field workers who urgently need potable water to maintain healthy levels of hydration while working in extreme heat.

La Isla Foundation and FundaciĆ³n Isla are seeking partners to support our integrated programs including Corporate Social Responsibility, Pure Water, and Public Health. With support from our partners we will construct a pure water system to fill a 15,000 gallon reservoir, connected to a gravity-fed distribution system leading to each home. We will also implement community empowerment, public health, environmental, and educational programs. To implement these programs we seek support from many sources!
