Clean water is often hard to come by when you live in Haiti. For many years, Haiti Foundation of Hope has struggled to have a well with good water on the school campus at Terre Blanche. Until recently, all the water for drinking and cooking for the nearly 1,000 students had to be hand-carried in five-gallon buckets from a well down the road.

The long treks of carrying water is no longer necessary. At the end of July, a well-drilling group arrived to drill a well that would meet the need of clean water for the school. On the first day of drilling, a well was successfully drilled across the road from the school campus, next to the church.

The good news continued with another well with good water successfuly drilled in the yard of the medical clinic. A third well found good water at a crossroads closer to Gonaives where several unsuccessful attempts had been made in the past. Further well drilling included wells at Finel, Dubedou and two other nearby locations.

What a gift to the people in these communities, and to the school children, to have clean water.

To help the school with other expenses such as lunches, books and teacher salaries, donate online. Your gift will make a difference in the lives of children and families.
