Provide access to safe water for children and families in critical need.
The urban community of Vernet is located just outside the city of Les Cayes in the southern region of Haiti. It is home to approximately 3,000 people who lack safe drinking water. Without easy access to safe water, countless hours are spent in water collection and what little income a family has is spent to purchase water and medical treatment for water-related diseases. Providing a solution to this need equates more time for school and work, better health, and hope for a better future.
You can help provide a safe water solution for the entire community of Vernet that will include the installation of a water treatment system in partnership with Water Mission. The components of the water system may include: construction of a concrete spring cap for an existing stream located in the community, installation of a submersible pump and electrical power for the pump, a water treatment system, construction of a wood-framed enclosure to house the treatment system, water storage tanks, and two water tap stands.
After implementation of the water project, we will work with the community of Vernet to provide the following:
Assessment & Design: $1,180
Living Water Treatment System (LWTS): $11,800
Electrical & Pump Equipment: $9,440
Storage Tanks, Piping and Wiring: $35,400
Community Training & Follow-up: $1,888
Total Funding Required: $59,708
Only 15% of your gift to our programs will be set aside for administration and fundraising costs.
