Board Member Dan Phelan and friends (Dan is the one in the middle) send greetings from Manolit, a Batay an hour outside Santa Domingo, Dominican republic. Manolito is the site of a recent Water/Sanitation project dan recently worked on.
Ms. Peoples, Just a note to let you know I did a “spot check” on WWR’s Batey 7 system. Everything checked out. Seriously, though, I was there to see WWR and First Water working on that first system and have been back there every year since. It is satisfying to see a sustained source of water for that community […]

We are lucky to have 2 months of planning ahead of us, and continuous time in the DR to map out our WASH programming. It hasn’t always been this settled. Estevan takes us […]
