Many of Haiti’s problems stem from contaminated water and lack of access to available water. Without question, the best preventive health measure available is to provide potable water wherever possible. In partnership with One Family International “OFI”, we’ve built a rooftop water catchment system, water reservoirs, and drilled deep water wells to serve more than 4000 people daily.
At Risk Children’s Initiative’s goal is to provide clean drinking water to the people of Haiti, especially the villagers of Custine, Cavaillon Haiti. August 0f 2009 we drilled a deep water well, built a 15,000 gallon water reservoir which serves many people beyond the village. The villagers call this project, “Bon Dlo,” meaning Good Water. It serves more than 1,000 people daily. This is a life-saving project in all areas where nearly every water source there has become contaminated with human and animal waste because of the absence of a sewer sanitation system, resulting in a clean environment for the children and the communities rejoice.
