As hotels in Cap-Haïtien, the largest city in northern Haiti, begin to fill and people prepare to celebrate the city’s 353rd year, PWW teams in nearby Limonade are busy delivering life-changing safe water programs.
The team recently began the third year of monitoring a safe water and hygiene program, funded by Rotary International, that reached 400 homes located in the underserved communities of Pistère, Déreal and Campeche.
PWW is committed to ensuring WASH programs are sustainable, with families using their safe water tools and hygiene practices correctly and consistently so they can experience the life-changing benefits now…and for generations to come. To support this commitment, we monitor implemented programs, at regular intervals, over a period three years.
Our team recently visited the home of Evanie Jean, one of our beneficiaries, to conduct her final monitoring, 27-months after the installation of her biosand water filter. Evanie Jean expressed her sincere gratitude. She is more than happy to have reliable access to safe water. She is hopeful that more people, living without, will be able to experience similar, life-changing benefits.
“Thanks to PWW, now I can drink treated water. I would like others, in my community, to have this opportunity too!” – Evanie Jean

We share our sincere gratitude for John Hill, the Rotary Club of Vermillion, OH, the Cap-Haïtien Rotary Club, and many additional clubs for supporting this Rotary Global Grant. Their collective commitment to ensuring people in Haiti have reliable access to our most basic human necessities is transforming lives and providing the foundation for a healthier, brighter future.
