Forward Edge International

Destination: Nicaragua

Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere—three quarters of the population living without clean drinking water, and hundreds are dying or suffering from preventable illness every year. Forward Edge International—one of the only relief & development organizations that sends volunteer teams working in this part of the world—is addressing the root cause of this health-care calamity. In 2008, FEI purchased a well-drilling rig and shipped it to Nicaragua. Locally-trained well drillers are hard at work and are drilling in villages that have no access to clean water, with the goal of drilling 50 wells over the next three years. Short-term volunteers will be be able to assist in this project, pouring concrete slabs, helping install pumps, and sharing Jesus - the Living Water -- with people in these villages.
