Abel Cruz Gutiérrez

President of the Peruvian Association without Water

Propeller of the system that captures water

The Peruvian engineer Abel Cruz Gutiérrez is the president of the Peruvian Association without Water; an entity that carries two important projects: Capturing water from the mist through the system of trappers (plastic mesh) and the second, providing water and drainage through self-financing of the community itself.

Cruz lived many years with lack of water, like millions of Peruvians who have lived in this condition. About 15 years ago he began to use this method to solve this problem in some forgotten areas of Lima.

Currently he aims to find the formula so that the water that rescues the fly waters is drinkable and can work in other climates. During 2016 the engineer gave lectures at universities in Malaga, Amsterdam and Vienna on his projects.
