A month after Hurricane Maria devastated their island, most Puerto Ricans still have no reliable source of safe drinking water.
American citizens of Puerto Rico are facing a massive humanitarian crisis. More than a million people still lack running water — they are forced to find water in contaminated streams, collect it from runoff, even drink from toxic Superfund sites. And the danger is not over for those with running water; because water treatment plants are still not operational, tap water may be tainted with raw sewage.
But we — you — can help alleviate human suffering. Through AFT’s Operation Agua, we are bringing water purification systems to Puerto Rican families and communities who are crying out for help.
A donation of:
- $30 provides an in-home purifier that provides up to 24 liters of safe water per day to a family in need.
- $150 buys in-home purifiers for 5 families in need.
- $300 provides desperately needed water for 10 Puerto Rican families.
