Arias painted “Hungry Girls” in 2018, a beautiful piece that captures the stunning sunsets of La Guajira and the vibrant Wayuu tribe. Yet, it also denounces the tragic reality of famine, drought, and lack of clean water in this area, leading to alarming child mortality and malnutrition. Despite being home to the magnificent flamingos of "Santuario de Fauna y Flora los Flamencos", this region struggles with these devastating issues.

Winner Wayuu is a Colombian foundation that, with resources and support, builds a self-sustaining solution to store vital water, called Oasis de Vida (Life’s Oasis), to improve the health and quality of life of the Wayuu indigenous community in La Guajira. The Oasis of Life’s reservoir (also known as the Inverted Hat*) is an artificial underground well that stores drinking water and is built by the community itself.

(Also known as the Inverted Hat*), which is an underground artificial well that stores drinking water and is built by the community.
The reservoir provides water to a complete rancheria, consisting of about 5 families, and its capacity can last from 2 to 3 months depending on its size. 

The reservoir consists of the underground artificial well and a filter designed to remove any odors, colors, flavors, and microbiology that may be present in the water. The reservoir has a depth of 3 meters by 3 meters in length and width, with a capacity of 10,000 liters.
