I returned from Butterworth South Africa, where I had taken a medical emergency trip to visit my sick Son in January 2019.
I just returned to Albuquerque on January 2020. While there my peoole and I went through two brutal water crises- one man made between June and August 2019 and the second one-drought related with a very bad human element between October to date.
My people have once again since two days ago resorted to water protests and are demanding that the President of South Africa visit the affected rural town of around 47,000 people to ask him to bring immediate relief.
While there I started two purified bottled water fund raising campaigns. First One was during the man made water crisis https://www.gofundme.com/f-urgent-clean-bottled-water-for-families The second one drought related with a bad human element https://www.gofundme.com/urgent-water-relief-for-children. I am raising funds through the second water crisis but people can refer to the first one.
I am appealing to the New Mexico community to help me buy and provide thousands of purified bottles to my people.
I left my Sister and my sewing students to take over the buying of water and distribution to the most vulnerable, but donations have dried up. Their latest delivery was two days ago before the water protests started.
