Review for OPERATION SAFE DRINKING WATER, Camarillo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked with Project Clean Drinking Water during a college service trip. The founders, Joe and Maribel, are the real deal. They have devoted their whole life and all their resources to bring safe drinking water and medical care to the villages in the Bocas del Toro area. The villagers' anguish as they and their children suffer from cureable diseases and drink unsafe water for lack of a better option is huge, and exacerbated by the fact that hospitals are not willing to help indigenous people. The villagers' lack of allies makes the help of Project Clean Drinking Water all the more vital to improve the villagers' lives and bring hope for a better future for their children, who will miss fewer days of school due to illness. It's a bare-bones operation that gives everything to helps the villages.

Role:  Volunteer & I installed water catchment systems, distributed reading glasses, and did crafts with the children in several villages around Bocas del Toro.
