In August of 2010 Amazon Expeditions, in partnership with Water For Peru / AVIDA (Our nonprofit sister company) completed our second water treatment plant in the community of Nuevo Junin. Nuevo Junin is a small community on the Yanayacu River where we operate our tours and is a community of approximately 350 residents. The water treatment system provides clean drinking water to the community for the first time in it’s history. Thank you to our donors and lodge guests for your generous support, it’s making a difference in the lives of the surrounding partner communities we work with!
