approximately the first 6 rows of blocks from the floor up about half way across one wall get partially wet when we have heavy rain. Just the bottom 1/3 of each block gets wet and efflorescence appears around some of the mortar joints. Most of the time the wall remains dry. Can I leave this alone without worry of eventual degradation of the blocks leading to structural problems?

I would address this soon before it damages the foundation.
