Water At Any Given Time

Don never had a fresh source of drinking water, a local factory gave the residents a little water but only in the middle of the night. See how you helped this community. Read Transcript


Reporter: FOR MORE THAN

60 YEARS, DON JULIO HAS

NEVER HAD A CLEAN SOURCE OF

WATER TO DRINK.

IN FACT, EVERY TIME HE OR

HIS FAMILY PUT A GLASS OF

WATER TO THEIR LIPS, THEY

WERE AFRAID OF WHAT MIGHT

HAPPEN.

THERE WAS A FAMILY THAT

HAS A LITTLE 7-YEAR-OLD BOY,

SUDDENLY HE HAD THE PAIN IN

HIS STOMACH AND BEGAN TO

VOMIT.

AND WITHIN 24 HOURS, THE

CHILD WAS DEAD.

THE PEOPLE SAID IT WAS

BECAUSE OF THE WATER.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

DON AND HIS FAMILY MOVED

FROM THAT COMMUNITY, BUT THE

WATER IN THEIR NEW LOCATION

WASN'T ANY BETTER.

WE WERE CONSUMING WATER

FROM THE RIVER BECAUSE WE

HAD NO CHOICE.

I KNEW THE WATER WAS

CONTAMINATED BY THE COLOR.

IT WAS TINTED, BUT WE STILL

DRANK IT.

Reporter: THE LOCAL

FACTORY FINALLY AGREED TO

SHARE SOME OF THEIR WATER

WITH THE COMMUNITY, BUT ONLY

LATE AT NIGHT, VERY LATE.

THEY TOLD US WE HAD TO

COME AND GET THE WATER AT

3:00 IN THE MORNING.

GETTING UP IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE NIGHT WAS VERY HARD ON

EVERYONE.

AT 6:00 A.M., THEY SHUT OFF

THE WATER.

Reporter: OTHER NIGHTS,

THEY REFUSED TO GIVE THE

RESIDENTS ANY WATER AT ALL.

"OPERATION BLESSING" DUG THE

FIRST WELLS THAT THIS

COMMUNITY HAS EVER HAD.

THE "OPERATION BLESSING"

WELL WATER WAS COOL AND

CLEAR.

AND WHEN YOU DRANK IT, YOU

COULD FEEL IT REFRESH YOU ON

THE INSIDE.

I KNEW FROM THAT TIME THAT

MY FAMILY WOULD NOT GET SICK

AGAIN FROM BAD WATER.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR THIS

WONDERFUL GIFT OF WATER.
