The total cost of the materials needed to drill one well and install a hand pump is between $800 and $2,000. This price does not include the cost of travel, meals and lodging for workers.
The typical cost of a latrine for one household is approximately $200. For a school, the price ranges from $1,000 to $3,000, depending on location.
The cost of a rain catchment system with rain storage tanks can range anywhere from $900 to $1,200.
Spring water storage and piping projects costs are dependent on the distance from source to village. Our past projects have cost between $3,000 and $5,000.
You can provide stateside support to Hydromissions teams by providing funding for a water and sanitation project. Every little bit counts, and every penny helps. If you choose to donate, your funds will be used to provide water or sanitation facilities in a community that desperately needs it, but, most importantly, your donation will also help provide people in remote areas access to streams of Living Water, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Hydromissions returned to Isla Bastimentos, Bocas del Toro in Panama, where they drilled a well in March 2014. On this project, Hydromissions was going back to the same community of about 80 Ngobe villagers. During their first trip, the team found out that the village did not have a bathroom facility. Everyone practiced open defecation in the mangroves (swampy) areas of the village. According to WHO, 1.1 billion people practice open defecation worldwide. The health risks with that practice are extreme, especially when combined with an area where they do not have basic hygiene practices (i.e. don’t wash their hands).
