Provide water for a family

My Uncle Cesar lives in a tiny place in Nicaragua called Guasuyuca, where there is currently a water shortage. These days of drought have exacerbated the situation to the point where it is almost impossible to collect water. The land there is very rocky, so you have to dig very deep to get any water. My uncle has another piece of land in which he dug a well on the side of a mountain, where it was easier to dig and they could more easily access water. They connected a series of hoses to let gravity do the work and bring the water to them. However, those hoses were stolen. They now have to go 7 miles to retrieve the water themselves from their previous well. The conditions are very different from what we are used to in the United States.

Mi tío Cesar vive en un pequeño lugar en Nicaragua llamado Guasuyuca, donde actualmente hay una escasez de agua. Estos días de sequía han agravado la situación hasta el punto que es imposible recoger el agua. La tierra es muy rocosa y es difícilde encontrar agua en el area para poder excavar. Mi tío y su hijo cavaron un pozo en una montaña y de allí recibian agua por unas mangueras. Desafortunadamente, les han robado estas mangueras. Ahora viajan 7 millas para sacar el agua. Las condiciones en Nicaragua son diferentes a las de los Estados Unidos





 His son dug him a well on their property, but with the land being the way it is they have had to dig very deep and are barely getting any water out of it.

Su hijo le cavo un pozo lejos de donde esta el. Este no está produciendo demasiada agua, pero por lo menos cubre para las necesidades básicas.




They need money to get a pump so that they can get the water out of the well. The most expensive things are long pipes they need to reach down into the well and all the labor involved to install them all and connect them to each other. Being with no water is awful, especially in his situation in which he and all his family live from his own crops and animals.

Ahora necesitan dinero para conseguir una bomba para que puedan sacar el agua del pozo. Lo mas caro son tubos largos que necesitan para llegar al pozo y todo el trabajo involucrado para instalar todos ellos y conectarlos entre sí. Estar sin agua es horrible, especialmente en su situación en la que él y toda su familia viven de sus propios cultivos y animales.





Since there has only been enough water to feed his family, their cows are dangerously skinny. These cows are all that my Uncle Cesar has. If he can't provide for them, he will have to sell them or they will die.

Como solo hay suficiente agua para darle a su familia, sus vacas estan muy desnutridas. Estas vacas son lo único que tiene mi tío Cesar. Si no les puede dar de comer, las tendrá que vender o se morirán.

There are five families altogether that need our help. I really want to help my uncle because I know the hard situation he’s going through. I just remember that his house is always full of people and he always provides food for everyone without hesitation. He is a generous, humble, and helpful man as is his wife. 

Son cinco familias las que necesitan nuestra ayuda. Realmente quiero ayudar a mi tío, porque sé la situación difícil que está pasando. Sólo recuerdo que su casa está siemprellena de gente, y siempre ofrece comida a todo el mundo, sin dudarlo. Él es un hombre generoso, humilde y servicial al igual que su esposa. 







According to the estimate, the materials and labor would be a little more than $5,000.00 dollars. Unfortunately, we don’t have all the money he needs, and that’s why we're asking you to help us to collect the money.
We'd really appreciate your donation. Please donate if you can. Every little bit helps.
Thank you so much in advance.

De acuerdo con el estimado, el material y la mano de obra sería un poco más de $5,000.00 dólares. Por desgracia no tenemos todo el dinero que necesita, y es por eso que les pedimos que nos ayuden a recoger el dinero.
Nos encantaría recibir su donación. Por favor, dona si puedes. Toda ayuda cuenta.
Gracias por su ayuda.
