Your donation MATCHED! A group of passionate PWW supporters have come together to help us advance our work in Limonade by offering an incredible $85,000 in matching funds. We need your help to secure the full amount by June 30th!
Happy Spring, dear friend of PWW! I hope this e-letter finds you and your loved ones healthy and embracing the change of seasons. We are excited to share some special news with you.
You may have already seen the exciting news about our transition to northern Haiti (see story). If you have not, in short, the PWW staff and Board of Directors made a very important decision last year. In order to continue to effectively serve the people of Haiti, it was clear that the time had come to transition our team and office out of Port-au-Prince. Years of political and social unrest, further complicated by the pandemic, had stalled our ability to safely and effectively deliver safe water and hygiene programs to families living near the country’s capital city.
During this same time, our programs in the Limonade region, where the need for safe water is significant, have been flourishing, as are our relationships with local leaders and partners (learn more about Limonade).
Our official move north happened early this year and Haiti team members, with their families, are getting settled into their new community. They are reinvigorated, possessing a renewed sense of hope, and excited to bring critical safe water programs to more families and communities.
Your gift today will be doubled and will directly empower Limonade families, like Monchère Claudette’s (mother of three), who celebrates her family’s new life with safe water:
“My children used to have stomachaches and diarrhea. But now that they are drinking the water from the filter, they are healthy! I want to say thank you to PWW. Thank you very much.”
Your generous support enables our team to continue this life-changing work.
We have been working in three small communities, in the Limonade region, comprised of ~2,000 families; 100% of the local water sources are contaminated with E.coli and other harmful pathogens. Waterborne diseases are widespread.
With your donation, doubled by matching supporters, we will:
- Expand our hygiene education program in Haiti to include additional trainings about environmental hygiene and water source protection, home hygiene, personal hygiene, and sanitation.
- Reach more families in the region who are in need of safe water filters and hygiene education.
- Conduct long-term monitoring to ensure the filters and hygiene practices are being used correctly and consistently, and families are experiencing improved health and wellbeing.
