The Temple chapter of Engineers Without Borders recently completed their trip to Saccha, Peru, where they helped the community build a water distribution network, and worked with the community on how to maintain it for future use.
The team worked with a contractor to cut and form rebar, pour concrete foundation and walls, construct a storage tank, stake out a pipeline route and excavate the spring area.
"Temple EWB is incredibly grateful for having this opportunity to serve the Saccha community," the team shared on social media after their trip. "Their dedication drives us to provide them with the best engineering solutions. Their love and hospitality that they showed us was overwhelming, especially with the Guinea pig lunch!"
Check out some of the photos from their trip or follow their journey on Facebook. We'll talk to the team soon to get more in-depth background on the project.
