The Need in North-West Haiti:
Nearly half of Haiti’s 9.8 million people lack access to a potable water source; in rural areas such as the North-West, the estimates are as high as 50 percent. While most of the island benefits from a tropical Caribbean climate, the North-West Department is blocked by the Massif du Nord Mountains, which stop trade winds from bringing in much-needed rain. In this rugged, unforgiving landscape, droughts can drive families to desperation, forcing them to use unreliable and potentially contaminated water.
In Le Coup, one of the neediest communities, residents have even been forced into desperate acts for the sake of getting water. One family sent their daughters out at 1 a.m. on a mule to fetch water at the closest fountain — eight miles away. The girls returned after the arduous journey at 3 p.m. with only three buckets of water. Another family risked drinking parasite-infested water and suffered for weeks with gastrointestinal illnesses. There are even heartbreaking accounts of parents saving urine to bathe their children in.
Repairing Pipes, Restoring Hope:
With your help, this outreach will install pipelines to a remote area where people lack access to clean water, and it will repair other damaged hardware essential to the water project. Members of the North-West communities have volunteered their time to help with the construction. All that’s needed now is funding to get the project started. Can we rely on you for that help? Every Haitian life is precious in God’s sight. Please partner with Cross International to meet this urgent need and save lives.
Our Promise to You – Proceeds will go directly to the most urgent projects of the need you have selected. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fund a particular project in any given category, the excess fund will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
