The basic services crisis continues to affect the common Venezuelan. After the collapse of the water industry, access to it has become almost impossible.
In the east of the country, citizens use urban sewers as springs. These water outlets are the only way that the inhabitants have access to the liquid.
Many sectors go up to 90 days without piped water service.
“I always come to get water, (I come)every day to do the cleaning, to cook because right now there is no service in the sector,” said José Bellorin from the main avenue of Puerto La Cruz, in Anzoátegui state.
Pedro Sánchez, another resident of the area, took advantage of the spring to take a shower in the middle of the street. “There is no water anywhere and I came to bathe here,” he said.
For his part, Carlos Díaz, another inhabitant of Puerto La Cruz, assured that he had not received water service through the mains and did not have water to eat or to wash his things.
Citizens are forced to travel several kilometers every day to load up and return home with a little water.
