Matt Dearmon's Fundraiser:

Help the kids of Kay Anj Village in Haiti

THE STORY:

For the past 5-6 years, I’ve been doing volunteer work with an awesome organization called Living Water International (http://www.water.cc) to go into rural areas of underdeveloped countries and drill water wells to provide the folks in those areas clean drinking water.  I made my second trip to Haiti at the end of February 2014 and got a chance to drill a well at the future site of a new orphanage called Kay Anj Village (Kay Anj means “Angel House” in Creole). The orphanage is operated by a non profit out of Virginia called Helping Haitian Angels (http://www.helpinghaitianangels.org). Currently, there are 40 children in a temporary orphanage in the Quartier Morin area, in the Northern part of Haiti, just outside of Cap Haitien, but once completed, the Kay Anj Village will be able to serve 120+ children with a school, a church, clean water and community sustained agriculture. I’ve attached the engineer’s layout of the development to this email - give it a look - it’s pretty impressive. As with any development, water is a key factor - without it, you can’t do construction, you can’t promote healthy habits and you can’t raise crops and livestock. Kay Anj Village will need a second well before the end of this calendar year. Each well that LWI develops costs about $6,500 - which covers the cost of equipment, supplies, labor and testing of the water for safety.

In the pictures section of this page are a photo of some of the kids from Kay Anj sampling the water from the well that we completed in February as well as the plan for the development.  Please take a look and donate if you can.  I'd appreciate it and you can truly make a long and lasting impact on the lives of scores of children with just a few dollars.
