2016 Annual Report Released

July 2016 — "As we come to the end of another fiscal year at Water Ambassadors Canada (WAC), we cannot help but feel blessed and encouraged by all our supporters and donors over the past year! Through your generous giving, words of encouragement and personal sacrifices of time and energy to volunteer for our trips, we were able to continue our ministry of providing safe drinking water for those without in some of the most remote areas of Central and South America. As a recap, WAC drills and restores water wells, installs chlorination and filtration systems and teaches health and hygiene."

Students Bring Clean Water to Nicaragua

March 2016 — A group of high school students from Haliburton, Ontario (along with a few adults), went on a well repair trip to Nicaragua in February, 2016. In spite of the language difference, many of them bonded with the local children. Thanks to the efforts of this team, 1,500 people now have access to clean water. And many of these young people want to go on another trip.

Safe Water for Nepal

September 2015 — This summer, Water Ambassadors assisted WaterStep with their work in Nepal by raising funds for ten chlorination units. WaterStep sent a team to Nepal to install the chlorination units and meet the immediate needs of the people affected by the earthquake. They also trained over 200 people from local non-governmental organizations who travelled from all around Nepal (some walking for days over tough terrain) to learn about water treatment and health education. We helped save lives with safe water!

Thank you to all who contributed. Please visit the WaterStep website for more photos.

2015 Annual Report Released

July 2015 — "I am always amazed how quickly time travels. Here we are at the end of another fiscal year. We are well into the 2000's and '2015' just rolls off of your tongue. I am very proud and pleased with the events over the last year. Our volunteer water teams have travelled throughout Central America. The highlight was the completion of over 100 water projects in 1 year. Since each project serves 300-500 people this multiplies quickly."

Haiti – 5 years ago a catastrophic earthquake…

Water Ambassadors Canada was humbled when we were asked to be part of the immediate response relief effort. We were pleased to work with WaterStep (Edge) to be part of the solution by bringing clean drinking water to the survivors. We have sent several teams since to continue delivering clean water solutions.
