Drinking Water Delivery for the Wayuu Community

Donation protected

Ever since we went to La Guajira we fell in love with the Wayuu indigenous community and their amazing skills as weavers. They are the masters behind the famous Wayuu mochila bag. A crochet bag with centuries of meaning and importance in their life, culture and economic fulfillment. 

Not only we have continued to support their craft for more than ten years, but in recent years we knew we had to give back in many other ways. In 2020, we began to donate trucks that deliver clean drinking water to dozens of families. 

Thanks to donors like you, 170,000 liters were delivered in 2021!
Our goal? To double that amount so 2 trucks can be delivered every 

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.
