Current Project

water supply

A project to provide clean, potable water to several areas of Côtes-de-Fer was completed on July 22, 2016.  The picture above shows engineers and staff from World Water Relief conducting an evaluation study for our second water project in the mountain village of Mayette.  This area of Haiti experiences outbreaks of cholera during the rainy season and we believe that a source of clean water will help eliminate this problem.  Thank you to the many donors and our partners "World Water Relief" for making these projects a reality. If you would like to help fund this project, please click on the donation button at the top of this page.  Clean water is so important to the health and well being of the people of Haiti.
