Conditions on the Altiplano are harsh. The inhabitants are poor and the land they cultivate is barren. Wells and springs are often contaminated as they are used by animals as watering holes and so, as the people have no access to clean drinking water, diseases abound. Therefore, the Suyana Foundation has set up and supports “water committees” to guarantee clean drinking water for the local residents.
