HANWASH develops and implements business-based best practices for public and private collaborations to build capacity in local communities to deliver thoughtfully managed and sustainable clean water and sanitation to all the citizens of Haiti
On August 14, 2021 Haiti was rocked by a massive 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake. Over 1200 confirmed dead, and hundreds injured or missing. The Rotary District 7020 Earthquake response committee met today and are assessing the damage done; the immediate needs; and how to help.
As we compile a list of needs and navigate the logistics to provide speedy aid, we are mounting an urgent fundraising appeal through the Disaster Network Assistance Rotary Action Group, a registered 501c3 non-profit in the United States.
Cash is always the easiest way to get help to those who need it quickly.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Our committee is in direct contact with Rotarians and our partners on the ground including local authorities and experts which is the most effective way we can help.
PIGNON Global Grant #2123673: This $366,000 project in Pignon will update and improve the Pignon water system so it can meet the community’s WASH needs and become financially and operationally sustainable for many decades.
FERRIER Global Grant #2123289: This $533,000 project in Ferrier will develop a sustainable, safely managed water supply solution to the village of Artaud in the Nord-est Department (Commune of Ferrier). Freshwater is not locally available in Artuad, and there is no existing public water system in the area.
