Through The AFT’s Operation Agua, we are bringing water purification systems to Puerto Rican families and communities who are crying out for help—and we’ll continue to respond for as long as it takes.

American citizens of Puerto Rico are facing a massive humanitarian crisis. More than a million people still lack running water—they are forced to find water in contaminated streams, collect it from runoff, even drink from toxic Superfund sites. And the danger is not over for those with running water; because water treatment plants are still not operational, tap water may be tainted with raw sewage.

But we—YOU—can help alleviate human suffering. Through The AFT’s Operation Agua, we are bringing water purification systems to Puerto Rican families and communities who are crying out for help.

Operation Agua

This effort is powered by community-based infrastructure and volunteers from the Puerto Rican teachers union—the Asociación de Maestros de Puerto Rico—supported by the expertise of partner organizations like Operation Blessing International, AFSCME, and the Hispanic Federation, and made possible by the generosity of donors like you. Together, we will purchase, distribute, provide training for and install purification systems for families in need across every region of Puerto Rico.

One hundred percent of your tax-deductible contribution will be used to fund these filtration and purification systems for Puerto Ricans desperate for safe water—and more than that, to provide hope and solidarity to those in need of help.
