This was my second volunteer trip to help Operation Safe Drinking
Water. These people are getting the job done. No one receives a salary or compensation. The leaders, Joe and Maribel Bass, work 14 hours a day and live among the people they're helping. They also donate before asking others to. I saw the lives changed. I talked to school principals who told me of greatly reduced absentee rates from sickness due to having safe water. Fewer indigenous kids miss school from sickness, and fewer give up and drop out because of chronic sickness from bad water.

I'll donate another rain catchment tank and go back again to help install it next year.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Indigenous islands of the Bocas del Toro archipelago of Panama

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try to get more volunteers to help carry the load Joe and Maribel now shoulder themselves.
