A message from Harvard EWB Water for Pinalito

Harvard University Engineers Without Borders (HUEWB) is currently working to provide clean water for the rural agricultural community of Pinalito located in the heart of the Dominican Republic. Due to the lack of a functioning municipal water supply, residents have been forced to drink from their only other water source -  a river contaminated by decades of dangerous agricultural waste run-off. This has led to an especially high incidence of severe waterborne illness particularly among the young children and elderly. Our chapter is working hard with the community to redesign and build a new clean water supply for Pinalito, so that safe reliable drinking water is the norm rather than a distant luxury.

Your generous donation will go towards our upcoming January 2014 implementation trip where we plan to drill a new well and install distribution piping to centralized community spigots so that clean water is never more than a few feet away.

Every little bit counts so we hope you'll join us in our efforts to help those in need.
