Water4Haiti December Mission Trip

THE STORY:

The ultimate goal is to help foster the growth of an independently sustainable community inside of Haiti to serve as a model for other communities in Haiti as well as other underprivileged communities around the world. In 2012 we solicited a grant from the Tallahassee Rotary Club to fund a water project for the town Dumay in Haiti. Since 2012 our group has visited Haiti three times, each time bringing more Sawyer Water Filters and supplies to town in an effort to alleviate some of the harsh living conditions. Since the first trip we have provided over 160 Sawyer water filters and training on drinking water etiquette; providing an estimated 650 residents access to non-contaminated drinking water. Each water filter can create about 100 gallons of clean drinking water per day and when maintained properly have a life expectancy of over 10 years! Our plan is to return this December for a fourth time with another 100 water filters (the most we have taken on a single trip) along with experts to help plan the second phase of this project. Proposed experts are: A pediatrician and nurse to staff the clinic and provide insights on how it can be improved. A teaching professional to staff the community school and provide insight on how to improve the quality of education. An engineer to work with local engineers and architects to understand the building challenges that can be anticipated moving forward. And a Farmer to work with local farmers to understand the conditions and educate on crops and sustainable practices. The money raised will be used to purchase 100 water filters, purchase flights, and cover accommodation for the team while in Dumay Haiti. Additional Money raised will be used to purchase
