Thank you! Your payment was successfully processed.

Thanks to your generosity, you helped Operation Agua bring more than 100,000 Kohler water filters to the people of Puerto Rico so could have reliable sources of safe drinking water. Even now—more than a year and half after Hurricane Maria devastated the island and its infrastructure—families, schools and communities still rely on these filters.

To make sure their filtration systems continue to function properly, we are asking for your help once again.

Will you help us raise $75,000 to purchase more than 9,000 replacement ceramic filters and distribute them free of charge to our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico? The replacement filters will ensure they can continue to have access to reliable and safe water for drinking, cooking, bathing and doing their laundry.

We get emails from people who still rely on the filters for safe water and use them constantly. They call the filters a lifeline and a godsend because the cost of bottled water is very high and the public water supply is not fully functional in many communities. Plus, the filters protect the environment by limiting the use of plastic, disposable water bottles.

Let’s show our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico that we continue to support them. A donation of just $8 helps a family keep their filtration system working properly, and $40 can ensure clean water for multiple families, several classrooms, a school or even multiple schools.

Please donate now!
