Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere. For the most part, people are living on about a dollar a day. In a study conducted a few years ago, Haiti was named the “most water-impoverished” country in the world.
Access to clean drinking water will:
- provide better health
- increase access to education
- increase opportunity for women and children
- help break the cycle of poverty
- increase the food supply and provide jobs
The goal of this year’s project is to continue to our work with water, farming, and access to food in the communities that we have drilled water wells as a result or our previous walks (since 2012).
Donate today and join our PURely Haiti 5k Walk, beginning and ending at Brookview Church. We will be serving lunch prior to the walk for $10/plate. This event is for all ages! There will be ways to engage children along the route and you can walk at your own pace. It's not a race. It's an experience!
Thank you for partnering with us to make a difference!
THE HARD TRUTH
of disease in Haiti is water-bourne
1 in 8
children don't make it to their 5th birthday because of malnutrition and water-bourne illnesses.
is the average distance the developing world walks for water.
Buckets instead of backpacks
children are often responsible for daily water collection, which often interferes with schooling.
