The lack of sanitary drinking water is one of Haiti's biggest problems. Most Haitians must rely on rainwater, or water taken from polluted streams that must be boiled before it can be used, for their needs. Others may walk 5 miles or more to obtain good, clean drinking water from drilled wells. To that end, and with the help of Rotary International, VIP has helped install over 30 wells throughout Mirebalais, Haiti.

Good drinking water is a must if you are to raise healthy children. 4-H clubs have made clean water a priority and have capped mountain springs to fill reservoirs for community use.

Ventures In People volunteers helped distribute over 10,000 filters in the last eight years. This enables between 70,000 and 90,000 people to now be able to drink clean water and prevent water born diseases such as cholera. The goal for 2024 is to raise $40,000 to be able to distribute 1,200 filters in January 2024.  We are nowhere near reaching that goal as of July 1, 2023. They will be distributed by a team of Haitians we have trained over the years.

Please help. Each filter costs approximately $35.

While parts of Haiti, especially the capital, are very dangerous at this time the central plateau where we work has been quiet and safe.
