The company’s donation of a freshwater well provides clean water for the first time in nearly a decade of living there.
Cancun, Mexico (PRWEB) June 10, 2015
Cancun, Mexico, June 10, 2015 – Jusuru International donated contributions to build a freshwater well for a forgotten community of La Jungla, about a one hour drive from Cancun, Mexico. Approximately 50 independent representatives also brought personal donations such as medical supplies, clothing, toys, shoes, and other necessities and physically installed a playground for the 400 families that live in the impoverished village. The humanitarian effort was done during an incentive vacation that the representatives earned by meeting specific sales criteria based upon the company’s line of nutritional and skincare products.
The company’s donation of a freshwater well provides clean water for the first time in nearly a decade of their living there. Prior to the company’s contribution, the nearest source of water was over two kilometers from the village. Typical for developing countries, women and children often spend four to six hours collecting water every day due to the inconvenient proximity and access to clean water. The well, which is fully equipped with an electric pump, sources groundwater from the underground rivers of the Yucatan peninsula.
According to the World Health Organization and UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP, 2014), 750 million people around the world lack access to clean water. Unclean water causes 80% of all disease in developing countries. In fact, JMP also reports that three million people die each year of waterborne disease, many of whom are children.
The residents of La Jungla were overwhelmed with the time, labor, and donations from Jusuru’s representatives. The children immediately ran to the playground and the mothers were appreciative of the benefits the playground, supplies, and freshwater well will bring. Asma Ishaq, the company’s president stated, “We always leave a place better than we find it. It is a privilege to take our representatives to Cancun as a reward for their effort; it is an even greater honor to see that their favorite part of the vacation is doing the work to better the lives of people in need.”
To commemorate the humanitarian effort, a local artist painted a “Giving Tree” mural on a wall in the community specifically naming the over 300 representatives at Jusuru International that qualified to take part in the giving back project.
