In November 2019, Xylem volunteers joined forces with Costa Rica Makes Me Happy (CRMMH) to help combat plastic pollution and to provide a family living in Tamarindo with clean water and a roof over their heads.
Plastic and waste management pose major problems in Costa Rica, with landfills overflowing and polluting the nation’s beaches and waterways. CRMMH is on a mission to tackle this problem through its programs aimed at making the region cleaner, safer and a happier place to live.
Bangladesh is experiencing one of the worst humanitarian crises in history. Since August 2017, Bangladesh has seen an unprecedented influx of Rohingya refugees fleeing violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State. Among the nearly 1 million Rohingya refugees now residing in the overcrowded camps and settlements in Cox’s Bazar district, 55% are children under the age of 18 and 52% of adults are women.
In recognition of their outstanding volunteer service with Xylem Watermark in 2018, employees were invited to attend the 2019 Volunteer Rewards Trips in Siem Reap, Cambodia and Tamarindo, Costa Rica in November.
