You may be asking yourself, “Why share this with us now? Surely they must have water.” I do not personally know these individuals. However, they were our neighbors. This is a first-hand look at the water situation in one community in Aguadilla. While Status.pr indicates, the island has 87.82% water service, this service in intermitted at best, with only 83% in the West-side of the island. According to our neighbor Alida, who just returned to the home this week, they had one day of water service, at only a trickle since Hurricane Maria’s landfall.
As my children and I watched this video, I was taken back to a time two years ago when I was in the Dominican Republic were water scarcity and purity was a prevalent concern. Our fellow Americans are residing on an island, being resourceful, yet could succumb to the long-lasting health conditions, even fatal to life, one thought only possible in a third world country. Our mission is to provide a sustainable, safe, clean, water solution for families in Puerto Rico. We invite you to join us on this journey, donate today!
