When the kids travel to Leticia, they frequently ride in overloaded, unsafe boats. In addition to safety, they take 2 1/2 to 3 hours to go downriver, and over 4 hours to go upriver. They freeze when it is raining, windy, and cold. They burn in the heat when there is sun. So how can we help? By providing an aluminum boat for transport!
We may also use the aluminum boat for faster, emergency transportation when accidents or illness strikes the village.
