Due to extensive government mismanagement, a failed economic model and corruption, shortages in water service are now common in Venezuela.
We live in a residential compound. My family goes four times a week to the trash room in order to fill vases with water so we can have enough to perform basic activities like bathing, flushing the toilet, cooking and cleaning dishes. Out of seven days, we get to have running water service for two entire days (Thursdays and Fridays) and half a day on Saturdays.
The government institution in charge of water supply (HIDROCAPITAL) has failed to resolve this issue. In the beginning of the year the blame was on the drought that hit the country, but now everything is back to normal and we still have no access to everyday running water service. As a result, our life quality has taken a severe plunge into deterioration.
