In another post, Jess Lucia notes the difficulty in obtaining a crucial resource when lives in poverty in a marginalized community.  Water is a fundamental necessity, but safe drinking water is all too often unavailable leading to preventable illness and costs.

In Santo Domingo, our housecalls and community work take place primarily in the community of Esfuerzo de Paraiso.  This is the most marginalized of the barrio’s communities, is physically isolated, and is the least developed area of Paraiso.

Jess Lucia, who joined us on January’s trip to document the project, has noted her thoughts about Esfuerzo on her blog.  Thoughtful as always, with photos that illustrate the community’s challenges.

At the bottom, Jess invites questions.  Jump in!
