Drinking Water Delivery for the Wayuu Community

55150800_1615228348939669_r.jpegEvery since we went to La Guajira we fell in love with the Wayuu indigenous community and their amazing mochila bags. 

Not only we have continued to support their craft but we knew we had to give back in many other ways. In the past 6 months we began to donate water trucks that deliver clean drinking water to dozens of families.  45,000 liters delivered in the mast six months!

Most families rely on other community members to bring containers of water by motorcycle or donkey from wells.
Reservoir wells are not always filled and traveling conditions can be dangerous. 

Gnawing hunger and thirst never leave the Wayuu. As many as 5,000 Wayuu children have died over the past decade from malnutrition and a lack of basic medical care, according to activists and aid groups. The Wayuu and the advocacy groups that support them say the coal mine has made life in the Guajira considerably worse. Scarce water has been diverted to the thirsty mining operation, leaving the Wayuu with dry wells or water too contaminated to drink. 

With your help we will continue to bring water every quarter or more to the Wayuu. This community also needs clothes, shoes and basic medicine.
