Photoserve will be taking a team of hard working, service minded, creatives to the Amazon to partner with Wine to Water December 1-10, 2016. We will come alongside Wine to Water’s work in fighting the global water crisis by helping to repair wells, connect with the community and capture our experiences along the way. As always, our first objective is to serve, while what we create is a natural outpouring of the experiences in which we are immersed.
December 1, 2016 we will fly to Bogota, Colombia. The next day we will take a short flight over to Leticia, Colombia. Once we land in Leticia, which is at the border of (Brazil, Colombia, and Peru) we will jump on a canoe and head up the river about 4-5 hours to the community (TBD) where we will be staying for the week. Once we arrive in the village, we will unpack, set up our hammocks in a school house or church, have orientation and get to work the next morning. We will stay in the village until Thursday, the 8th, doing well repairs, hygiene lessons and cultural immersion. We may also have the ability to assist Wine to Water in some community follow-ups and reports from past wells/well repairs in the region. On Thursday the 8th, we will head back to Leticia for the night, and fly to Bogota on Friday. We will have dinner and go see Monseratte in Bogota, then fly out early the next morning to return to the states. This is an opportunity for you to use your skills, gifts and talents to give back, to help provide clean water and to walk alongside non-profits and individuals that are giving their lives to make a difference along with you!
We have created a fundraising platform for you to use and encourage you to get your community, friends and family involved so that they can be a part of helping to fight the global water crisis!
