Lavaplatos Sinks, Hope Floats. Lavaplatos, the Spanish word for “dishwasher,” provides the most basic, effective means of draining excess water used for bathing, laundry and food preparation away from homes. The basin’s strikingly sensible design, ease of installation, and hygienic efficacy definitely make it a life-changer, if not a life-saver. Recipients share a portion of the cost for each basin, which has been modified from its original design to better suit our communities.
Lavaplatos sinks are basins intended to collect excess water after cooking and bathing, then route it away from the home to drain using simple, easily installed pipes. Keeping dirt floors dry cuts down on the presence of insects, the possibility of disease, and improves overall hygiene to keep families healthy.
100% of the cost from every purchase on Outreach Shop goes directly to support the women, men, and children throughout our international partner communities.
