Monte Rosa sugar mill inaugurated a drinking water system in the Germán Pomares community in the municipality of El Viejo.
This project improves the quality of life of the beneficiaries; giving them access to safe and quality drinking water, reducing gastrointestinal diseases and promoting the social welfare of the population. The monitoring of the sustainability of this project is carried out through the Drinking Water and Sanitation Committee (CAPS), comprised of members of the community.
