A husband and wife, who used to live in Morden, returned to the community to present the non-profit they volunteer with.

David and Ruth Wiens work with Atzin Mexico: a humanitarian organization that works with rural people in Mexico to gain more self-sufficiency and better life-opportunities. Largely focused on providing women a way to earn a fair wage, Atzin also works to provide healthcare, safe drinking water, and education to rural villages.

The women were weaving intricate patterns into the baskets during the presentation

The presentation took place at the Morden Mennonite Church Saturday afternoon. A man from an indigenous tribe called the Nawa opened the presentation with a traditional prayer which involved turning one's body to face a different direction, while the Nawa man blew in a conch shell to signal each new turn.

David Wiens described what he and his wife did to help the Nawa people gain access to clean drinking water,

"The water is in a well, but it contains lead and arsenic," said Wiens prior to the presentation Saturday.

"So, we built them dry latrines and a rainwater catchment tank. During the rainy season we would catch rainwater and it would stretch through the dry season, almost to the next rainy season, providing them clean, bacteria free water."

Many women in the Nawa tribe practice palm weaving, where they make baskets and other useful items. Two women were at the church weaving baskets during the presentation. There were also many items, made from palm leaves, on display.
