The Story

Water for Puerto Rico / Agua Para Puerto Rico is a grassroots, nonprofit organization supplying water filtration and other aid to those in Puerto Rico following this devastating hurricane season. What started as a group a dozen concerned people on social media, led by two friends from high school who refused to let Puerto Rico languish, is now a growing effort by hundreds around the world who have donated thousands of dollars of goods, including aid and water filters, to the people of Puerto Rico. Items are shipped from individuals around the world to the Water for Puerto Rico team in San Juan who see that they're distributed, often to more rural places where aid has been scarce. 

In response to the need, we are moving beyond personal filtration systems to large filtration systems for entire towns. This effort will provide safe water to whole communities who are in desperate need.  

Please, join us.

Thank you to all of you who have shared our story and donated.  We have now raised over $6,000 towards our goal, but we still have a way to go.  And today, over 100 days after Maria, much of Puerto Rico still has limited access to water and electric.  The need is still great.  The village of Orocovis remains cut off from the rest of the Island, over 100 days after Maria!  The people have to walk 45 minutes to get out to a road where they can get supplies and water, and then walk 45 minutes back.  Alejandro was there last weekend and is headed back this weekend.  We need to purchase supplies for them, food, (Rice, beans, tomato paste), chainsaws to help clear the road.  If we can raise another $1000 this week, we can do these things.  

Won't you help?
