Meet the Community of Cerro Verde
Our community is a very humble community, very happy and the people are very sweet. I want to greet people over there in the United States and tell you that this Ecuadorian, this “Manabita” wants something good for our community.
“We are a community that needs this project, needs this work. For me really it’s because of the water because the water does not go through proper treatment.”
“Truly, we are proud to be Ecuadorians and that some of our American brothers came to visit us. It’s very good – excellent. As an Ecuadorian I am very grateful because we are one world. And, like we Ecuadorians say, together we are more.”
Our chapter has been busy working to help improve the lives of our partner communities. Stay up-to-date on our recent work!
