THE STORY:

Hello and thank you for visiting our fundraising page!

This past summer I had the opportunity to travel to Haiti with the Poured Out organization. Our team worked to install over 60 HydrAid water filters in homes, schools and orphanages and we also educated the community about water safety and hygiene.

Poured Out’s mission is to “take water from life-threatening to life-giving.” As the poorest country in the western hemisphere; access to clean, fresh water is a main concern in Haiti. Here waterborne illnesses, such as typhoid, cholera, and chronic diarrhea, are the cause of more than half of the deaths in the country every year. Contaminated water is also one of the leading causes of childhood illness and the very high infant death rate in Haiti (57 for every 1000 births) . It was shocking to see the horrendous water sources that have to be used for cooking, bathing, cleaning and DRINKING! However, there is no greater feeling than being able to bring  life-saving water to a family, school or orphanage where immediate health benefits will be realized. (Sources; worldbank.org & haitiwater.org)

Jordan and I are a part of a team that will be traveling to Torbeck, Haiti to build a solar water house ($10,000 cost) for the community as well as install 50-60 HydrAid water filters (@$170 each).

Fun fact: A donation of a water filter can provide safe, clean water for a family of up to 10 people for life! :) 

The dates for the trip are Wednesday, July 13th -Wednesday, July 20th.

Please visit Poured Out's website at www.poured-out.org to learn more about this wonderful organization and see faces of families that have already received water filters or now have access to clean water via a water house!
