A month after Hurricane Maria devastated their island, most Puerto Ricans still have no reliable source of safe drinking water.
But YOU can help. Through Operation Agua, an initiative of the American Federation of Teachers and our partners, we are bringing water purification systems to Puerto Rican families and communities who are crying out for help.
For less than $30, you can give a filter that purifies 10 gallons per day to a family or classroom in Puerto Rico.
For $5,000, we can provide a local community with a disinfectant generator capable of purifying 150,000 gallons per day.
[INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR CAMPAIGN]
This effort is powered by community-based infrastructure and volunteers from the Puerto Rican teachers union—the Asociación de Maestros de Puerto Rico—supported by the expertise of partner organizations like Operation Blessing International, AFSCME and the Hispanic Federation, and made possible by the generosity of donors like you. Together, we will purchase, distribute, provide training for and install purification systems for families in need across every region of Puerto Rico.
Your tax-deductible contribution will be used to fund these filtration and purification systems for Puerto Ricans desperate for safe water—and more than that, to provide hope and solidarity to those in need of help.
