Mayrasco is a community of about 300 people located just south of the city of Cusco. It is located in the District of Santiago, which does not receive the tourism income of other regions near major attractions like Machu Picchu.

33 Buckets connected with this community while organizing another project in the nearby town of Occopata. In May 2018, we held a community meeting and agreed to implement a similar water project, scaled down to meet the needs of this smaller community. 33 Buckets installed a chlorination system to disinfect the water supply in June. Recent tests carried out by the local government have shown that the water is being effectively treated. 300 people now drink safe water thanks to you, our partners and donors!
