On October 4, 2017, Hurricane Matthew, a category 4 storm, decimated the southern part of Haiti, including the village of Roche-Jabouin. It completely destroyed 119 of its 125 houses in the village and wiped out its only clean water system. Since then, approximately 1,560 families are without clean water and are forced to gamble their life by drinking and bathing with a contaminated water that is unsafe for human consumption. As a result, hundreds of children are being diagnosed with water-borne diseases, including typhoid, cholera, and chronic diarrhea.
But you can help save their lives by supporting our project to repair the clean water system and provide safe drinking water to the families. RSHaiti needs to raise at least $35,000 to repair the water system: to pay for Reverse Osmosis units, Softener, Microbial Filter, Inverters, Solar Panels, Submersible Pump, Batteries, and Controller.
