After being hit by three back-to-back hurricanes in as many weeks, the city was being drowned by the very river that gives it life.
The main river that runs through the city is where women wash their clothes; people take baths and children play and swim. However, when the storms hit, the river overflowed its banks and spilled into the neighborhood communities, contaminating the few water wells that were in use and making the water unfit for consumption.
Operation Blessing, in partnership with Water Missions International, World Concern and international shipping giant, DHL, installed a water purification system there that is now providing safe water to more than 500 families. The system can purify up to 10,000 gallons of water a day.
