The video shows the change in the lives of families benefitted by the programme, conducted by IPAM with support from the Ministry of Social Development and Fight against Hunger (MDS). There were 158 drinking water supply systems installed in settlements in Pará, reaching around 500 families. Forest was invited to register the project and produce an institutional documentary.
Many people believe that there is no such thing as lack of water in the Amazon, but the project identified that, despite being an area with an abundance of water resources, the water in the settlements was not always suitable for human consumption.
The project meets the main objective of the Federal Government’s National Program for Universal Access to and Use of Water (Água para Todos – Water for All). The initiative strives to promote universal access to water in rural areas, aiming at food and nutritional security for families in situations of social vulnerability.
