Due to the drought between the months of March to December, the Wichi community in Salta suffers from water shortages. Many of them live between 30 and 100 kilometers from the water treatment plant that provides them with water, and when they have the chance to fetch it, they can only carry a few 2-liter cans, because that is all that the motorcycle or bicycle carries.

That is why Sumando Manos is installing 600-liter tanks in 200 family homes in the towns of Morillo and Los Blancos, Province of Salta.

In this way, when it rains, they can fill the tank and accumulate water for future use, and in the event of a drought, the municipality can fill the tank and prevent the residents from traveling to the water treatment plant.
