Due to COVID-19 their monthly missions were suspended and a new program has been developed to continue to help these communities. The areas of focus are in Sinaloa and Sonora, Mexico and the local network has been integral in continuing to install Biosand Filters to provide water and distributing food to these communities in need. Broadbent would like to highlight their work by sharing this video. For more information, please visit the LIGA site here.
