Working with Communities in Northwest Haiti

Since January’s earthquake, improving rural Sanitation and Hygiene in Haiti has been a priority of Lambi Fund’s.  Our field monitors have been working with community organizations in the Northwest to develop a sustainable sanitation plan that will provide these populations with access to latrines.  Through conversations with these local groups, it has been decided that the latrines will be built in community centers like local grain mills.  This will provide community members with equal access and group members will be able to oversee the management and maintenance of the latrines. 

Continued support for this project is greatly needed though, as the need for latrines far exceeds Lambi Fund’s financial resources.    The purchase of one latrine provides approximately 25 individuals with access to proper sanitation- exponentially improving their overall health, keeping the local environment clean and ensuring local water sources are not contaminated.  Together we can provide a clean and healthy environment for all communities in rural Haiti.
