Organized by: Idigenous People
EVENT DATE Jan 27, 2016
"Our tribe financially cannot help us it's been mentioned to state and government officials.No response as of yet. Our community consists of approximately 190-200 people who have had to deal with this water issue for at least a decade. The tribe does bring two mobile water tanks here but children play in them and that has caused contamination people are afraid to use that water but have to in most cases even though there has been illnesses form that water. In winter months they freeze and can't be used.
We are 30 miles from any town, meany don't have transportation one the money to buy water when they need it. Especially the elders who reside here. The water causes eczema/psoriasis like skin conditions. Worse in those who are diabetic. It's also ruins clothing, water heaters, washers,and erodes any water fixtures. Any standing water such as the backs of toilets are stained black with a calcium like build up.
We have been ignored by the Indian Health Service. We are told is safe to cook with, bathe in and drink. I hope that with your help maybe it will catch the attention of someone who can help our community. Thank you. "
Our goal is to buy a running water machine that also flirts the water and provides these families clean water.
We have found the perfect machine and its filter as an addition which is needed to provide fully clean water to these families. Below is a list of where all the funds gathered will be spent on:
Graf Optimax Pro® Internal Filter Package - $749.95
Installing and additional tools - $300.00
