Volunteer Service Trip: Amazon

Volunteer Service Trip: Amazon

About This Campaign

The Amazon is our most rustic and adventurous location for volunteers to join our efforts in providing clean water. Once you land in the jungle, you will hop on a canoe, head up the river to a nearby village to do water projects as well as community development. This could include: digging a well, repairing broken wells, teaching hygiene lessons, construction projects, etc. It's a great way to dive straight into the culture as you sleep in a hammock each night and learn first hand about what it takes to dig a well.

Trip Cost and Fees:

  • $1,100 per person
  • Airfare: Purchased on your own
  • Visa Requirements: Free Tourist Visa upon entry into Bogota, $10 cash upon entry into Leticia

*Cost is based on a 10-day trip and includes all food, housing, ground transportation, overseas medical insurance, and project materials. If a trip extends longer than the dates listed a charge of $100/person/day will be charged. A $250 non-refundable deposit for the total trip cost is due upon registration.

Wine To Water

Campaign to Support Wine To Water

We're a small team based in Boone, NC, who believes ordinary people, in community, can make an extraordinary difference in the world.  This movement began in 2004 when our founder, Doc Hendley, while bartending in Raleigh, NC, learned about the world’s water crisis.  Once captured by the cause, Doc felt the need to do something about it.  So, he did. He did what he knew best…pour some wine, beer, and spirits, play some music, and have a great time with friends. When it was all said and done, a few thousand dollars was raised due to the generosity of the community.  With some money in hand, Doc soon found himself in Darfur, in the midst of a war, working to provide clean water to those who were in desperate need in desperate times.  Thus, Wine To Water was born.

I may not be called to be a missionary, but I will always support those who are! Thank you for all your prayers when I was so sick last year. I know prayer played a big role in my survival and recovery. Safe travels!
