We never knew it would get this big! We just set out to help in the only way we knew how. We are a group of friends and acquaintances of current and recent residents of Puerto Rico, each with a big chunk of our hearts still there. It wasn’t uncommon to go a week without power and or water, and as a result, we learned to survive, yet the humanitarian conditions after the arrival of Hurricane Maria is an entirely different situation. Our family, in conjunction with Chris and Mary Martin, have come together with Brad and Amy McFarland, educators and former Peace Corps volunteers; raising funds, sending, and distributing much-needed water filters to the people of Puerto Rico. Our hope is not to patch the problem, but fix a broken system providing safe, clean drinking water for a lifetime. We are not handing out bottles of water, but giving the people of Puerto Rico the tools they need to have filtered water regardless of circumstances. Connecting with churches and organizations continuing to expand our outreach. Currently providing water filters to individual homes. However, we plan on opening “water kitchens” in local churches to help serve communities on a broader scale. Please join us!
