Despite the opulence of Panama City and the breakneck speed with which the Panamanian economy has grown in the past few decades, the state of the communities we work with in the northwest of the country is heartbreaking. On the indigenous Ngöbe-Buglé reservation, 92% of people live below the poverty line and have the highest infant mortality rate in all of Panama, nearly twice the national average.* Over 60% of residents of the Ngöbe-Buglé reservation do not have access to clean water. In one township where Solea Water has worked, 89.5% of residents did not have access to safe drinking water.**
