Hurricane Iota dumped buckets of rain on Santa Barbara, leaving rivers flooded, roads washed away, mudslides, and no electric power. NO tapwater has existed since mid-November and hundreds of people line up daily at our orphanage for purified water. Our water filtration system, built for perhaps 100 users a day, was called upon to deliver to hundreds a day. Even the fire department was attempting to fill trucks for emergency delivery. Overwhelmed, it our water purification system has stopped working.
Due to the increased need for clean water, the electric bill has skyrocketed.
Our friend, Dr. Rodriguez is seeing patients suffering from gastrointestinal issues due to dirty water; the only option. The Mayor, Fatima Juarez Alcaldesa, has asked for a BIG unit to be placed in the town square and we are responding. We have located a unit that will supply up to 5,000 gallons per day. Clean drinking water is a must, or people will die. Already, our orphanage is in jeopardy again, now that the town's people have overwhelmed our water filtration.

These diseases are directly related to pollution of these environments.
