Every day, women and young girls carry more than 40 pounds of dirty water from sources miles away from their homes.
With unpredictable weather and natural disaster always a possibility, sustainable environmental projects are essential to Haitian communities.
Our current, high priority Environmental Projects...
Power for Zorangé Compound
Increase the electricity installation to the whole HFHF compound in Zorangé. Will greatly support the medical clinic, school, radio station, trade school, and the water filtration system. Design work, labor and materials estimation are complete. The only task remaining before starting work is raising the funds.
Getting Water from River to Compound
Install a system that will pump water up to Zorangé and its facilities. Brings clean, safe water to more than 700 people. Design work, labor and materials estimation are complete. The only task remaining before starting work is raising the funds.
Dorm Renovation in Bainet
The goal is to create a fully-functioning facility, complete with bathrooms, bunk beds, storage, etc for visiting teams and working medical staff. Aside from basic construction and up-fitting, the well and filtration system need to be revamped. Those who stay in the dorm will be relatively “comfortable” enough to provide excellent service and work more efficiently. Doctors and nurses are coming to work in March 2013. If funds are raised in time, the work can get done to meet this goal.
Cost: $30,000 (unofficial estimation)
Other Environmental Projects
- Gandou clinic solar panel system
- Sea wall/retaining wall around property in Bainet
