Clean water is something we can easily take for granted. In the United States we are fortunate to have enough clean, safe water to meet our needs. However, this isn’t the case for millions of people around the world.
For the people Dr. Axel Suquen serves in rural Patzun, Guatemala, safe drinking water is not nearly as accessible. Even where a well is built or tap water is available, most often the water is not safe to drink.
Dr. Suquen responded to that challenge more than 10 years ago by setting up a water purification plant funded by a U.S.-based church. That equipment is now aging, and the water produced is no longer reliably pure.
