On a recent incentive trip to Cancun, Mexico, a group of Jusuru International representatives made a lasting impact on a nearby village. The team traveled to rural La Jungla to build a freshwater well and playground for the impoverished community.
“We always leave a place better than we find it,” Jusuru President Asma Ishaq said in a statement. “It is a privilege to take our representatives to Cancun as a reward for their effort; it is an even greater honor to see that their favorite part of the vacation is doing the work to better the lives of people in need.”
The new well, equipped with an electric pump, provides a clean water supply where the residents had previously traveled more than two kilometers to the nearest source of water. According to the World Health Organization and UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme, an estimated 750 million people worldwide lack access to clean water.
In addition to installing the well and a playground in the village, the Jusuru team—more than 300 in all—donated necessities such as medical supplies, clothing and toys to the residents of La Jungla.
