Dec. 3, 2013

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. — Various WWIF projects have impacted 4,500 families in the Dominican Republic and Ghana.

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. — Two different Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) projects this year impacted 550 families in the Dominican Republic, according to a press release.

The two projects were carried out in partnership with the Safe Water Team (SWT) and Project Las Americas (PLA), noted the release.

The ongoing San Jose Ulloa project, started in the summer of 2012, has distributed biosand filters to an additional 150 families in San Jose Ulloa so that the entire village now has clean, safe drinking water, the release reported.

WWIF has also funded Hydraid filters in Ghana in partnership with SWT and Safe Water Ghana (SWG), impacting a total of 4,500 people in the Dominican Republic and Ghana combined, according to the release.

"This new model, partnering with other organizations with the same or similar mission as ours, is working out great," said Guillermo Guzman, WWIF founder and CEO. "It allows us to positively impact more people, with fewer resources. We are committed to continue nurturing existing partnerships and to develop more of the same as we move forward into 2014."
