In February 2022, the community of Xejox celebrated the arrival of clean water. Thanks to the hard work of the ASUVI (Asociación Unidos por la Vida) team, thirty-three families now have easy access to fresh water. This project was funded through a generous donation in memory of Maureen Mueller Gregorcich, sister-of-law of co-founder Sister Jan Gregorcich.
