SPOTLIGHT- Water for Panama
The village is home to the indigenous Kuna people — and a young Church of Christ, where Alvereno Ponce serves as a minister.
The deaths were attributed to contaminated water, said Brady, director of Alabama-based Panama Missions.
“We installed 50 filters in the village in June and promised to help them deal with this tragedy,” Brady said.
The cost of water filters is rising, and the ministry seeks additional funds. To contribute, see panamamissions.org.
