CAPTION
Yolanda Burges holds her 17 day old son Ricardo Daniel. Leonida has had a bio sand water filter in her home for two days. Bottled water is expensive to buy and it's of questionable quality. With a new baby, the filter is a relief. She can cook, bathe and make bottles all in her home. Without the expense of water she can also better afford clinic visits for Ricardo. They live in Aquas Negras, a Dominican barrio on the outskirts of Puerto Plata, Domincan Republic.
