The Agua for Nicaragua committee is excited to share that El Porvenir has placed a memorial plaque near a well in Maria Auxiliadora, Nicaragua in Judi Buehrer’s honor. El Porvenir is a non-profit whose mission is to create Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WaSH) education projects alongside the people of Nicaragua. Judi was the inaugural chair of the CUC water committee (aka Agua for Nicaragua) and was an active member of the mission committee. 

Judi and a team from CUC traveled to Nicaragua on our first work trip with El Porvenir in 2011. The team built stoves in Maria Auxiliadora instead of building a well because the community had trouble getting a viable well drilled.

Make sure to read the beautiful inscription which is in both English and Spanish

Judi helped raise funds to support El Porvenir (remember the Chocolate Therapist chocolate bars) and helped organize three more mission trips to Nicaragua and was thrilled when they were finally able to drill a well in Maria Auxiliadora.

Thank you to all of the CUC members who helped support our partnership with El Porvenir and Judi’s memorial plaque!
