Thursday, Feb. 23. 2012 Esmeralda, one of the children we provide monthly assistance to is shown here getting a bath. Her sister Indirha sits Esmeralda on her lap on a plastic chair with a hose……brrrrrrrrrr……..it’s chilly under the shade of the banana tree!
Habanero is divided by the major highway that runs through the Dominican Republic and luckily for this household they have access to water ...all the time. The government put in a new aqua duct which brings clean water to Barahona. Unfortunately, the government did not see the need for everyone to have this water. So the other side of the highway which is where the school and the mission house is located is still on the old water system. We get water about every 3rd day! But we are thankful for that. Amen!
