International Org/Dev/Coop / Argentina, problems with school catering services
|Spanish term or phrase: hacen llegar (in context)|
"Si sumamos a esto, carencias como la ya mencionada del agua potable, y otras que permanentemente hacen llegar los responsables de brindar el servicio, completamos un cuadro que no es muy alentador [...]"
My confusion is that this seems to say that the additional problems are caused BY those in charge of providing the service. Given the context of the whole document, I would rather have thought that the intended meaning would be "[problems] that constantly plague those in charge of providing the service".
Is there another way to interpret this sentence (or a simple typo that could explain the difference in meaning), or is it saying, clear as crystal, that the service managers are creating additional problems?
A one-sentence answer with no explanation will really not help me here. Thanks in advance for your intelligent opinions.
If we add (to these problems) deficiencies like the aforementioned lack of water, and other problems frequently reported by those responsible for the service, it all sums up to a rather unfavourable scenario.
Though there isn't enough context to be sure, I believe this is the meaning. There are obviously many possible variations in phrasing

|Thank you to all who answered - I hadn't read "hacen llegar" in that way. It makes sense now. I think "reported" fits most naturally into the sentence here, avoiding the use of "our". I may be chided for closing the question so quickly, but there seems to be consensus (and this document is overdue in any case...).|
