Thousands in need of clean water after Storm Isaac

International Action is trucking water all day long to bring clean, safe water to Haitians displaced by the storm. Your support is essential as we need $1,000 a week for three weeks to continue our water trucking efforts.

Tropical Storm Isaac hit the coast of Haiti on Saturday, August 25. The effects were felt immediately. The water rose up to people’s waists, knocked down walls and poles, and damaged hundreds of houses. 24 Haitians have died as direct result of the storm and thousands of people were forced to flee their homes and tents; roughly 400,000 Haitians are still living in the tents they were given after the earthquake.

The raised water levels have contaminated many wells throughout Haiti, which if not dealt with properly, could lead to another waterborne disease epidemic.

International Action will be trucking water every day until these people are back in their homes and the contaminated wells have been fixed. Thank you again for your support in this time of great need.
