Expansion of the Water Treatment Plant "San Francisco"

Dominican Republic

Justification

There is no potable water supply in the area; it is necessary to boil the water from the wells or buy it at 30 pesos for the 19-liter jug (very expensive for impoverished families). Furthermore, Acute Diarrheal Disease is one of the main causes of infant mortality.
