GIVE THE GIFT OF WATER REPORT4

 

Hello Dear Friends and Partners,

HAITI!

Haiti continues to struggle from the aftershocks of a government corruption scandal where $2 billion went missing as well as the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.  The lockdowns affected Haiti just as it did every other country in the world, but due to Haiti's much greater poverty levels and lack of governmental resources, and poor infrastructure, the lockdown effects have been more severe for the average Haitian. School, business and government shutdowns crippled everyone.

Our water program repairing broken pumps also had to shut down for many months.  DMI implemented instead a remote distribution system for COVID-19 of Water, Food, and Hygiene care package for our needy population to do our part and help in a practical way.

The Haitian Government reopened the country back in August, the COVID-19 cases were relatively minimal so schools and businesses were allowed to function. We are finally able to continue our program repairing broken pumps and work on new pumps. We had to make many adjustments, especially with new social distancing rules.

This project is having to bring sustainable access to clean water and sanitation to neighboring schools in the water-stressed region of Haiti is lacking the funding that is necessary to accomplish what was originally intended however, we are using whatever means to help those who are in need.

Give the gift of Water Program has been blessed the past month with the help of a Canadian biker, Kris Rudic, who launched “highway-for-haiti-covid-19-relief-fund” Kris Rudic had been planning on volunteering in Haiti but when the pandemic hit, decided to change his plans and come up with a new way to give back. Kris bikes around Nova Scotia raising funds for COVID-19 relief in Haiti. He raised more than $2000 for COVID-19 projects, of that amount, DMI got a disbursement of $540.23 on September 25, 2020, and $183.74, on October 23, 2020.

Those funds have been allocated to the need for a new pump in the much-needed area of Dubre North of Haiti. We have received news that the measurement and digging of the well should begin soon.

The people of La Fuite, Milot Haiti thanks Kris for his generous heart of giving and promised to continue to pray for him. They promised to send a photo next time.

We are counting on all of you friends and partners! We will keep you posted. Thank you for your unending support in enabling us to empower these communities with the gift of clean water!

Report for Fight Near Starvation in Rural Haiti!

  Dear Friends and Partners,

DMI is taking this opportunity to thank you for supporting project Fight Near Starvation in Rural Haiti! 
Your support helps ensure that we can continue to help our community. We know there are a lot of other ways you could have spent this money, but chose this organization, we feel privileged that you chose to invest in this work. We thank you for being part of this community and we'll continue to honor you. We want to make sure you see the impact your donations are having on those you chose to support and help.

Your donations are making a difference in the lives of those who less fortunate in   Haiti.

As you might be aware,

"Haiti ranks 169th of 189 countries on the 2019 Human Development Index. Despite notable improvements in some development indicators over the past two decades – including an increase of nine years in life expectancy at birth – chronic poverty is still widespread throughout the country. Many people don’t have easy access to electricity, water, sanitation or healthcare. Two children out of ten do not attend primary school, and the literacy level of the population over 10 years of age is 61 percent.

 

Haiti has one of the highest levels of food insecurity in the world. According to a new Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) analysis, more than one in three people need urgent food assistance, that is nearly 3.7 million people. Over 1 million people are in a situation classified as emergency. New areas could be in emergency situations in 2020."

One problem thus, this project has very little amount of people who contributed to reaching the intended goal, there are no funds to continue our response to the many people in need. No matter the obstacles, DMI remains committed to saving lives by providing vulnerable families with life-saving assistance. A simple kit – consisting of rice, beans, and oils; products many of us take for granted – could mean the difference between going to sleep hungry or having a meal for the people we serve—and your generosity is what makes this positive change possible.

There's still time for your compassion to go even further. Join us in making the world a little brighter by sharing the link below!

Thank you for taking the time to catch up with us. 

Many, Many Blessings!

And please stay healthy!!!

Corona Virus Relief Report

Dear Friends and Partners,

This report is another chance for DMI and team to thank you for supporting project  Corona Virus Relief!

Your support helps ensure that we can continue to help our community. We know there are a lot of other ways you could have spent this money, but chose this organization, we feel privileged that you chose to invest in this work. We thank you for being part of this community and we'll continue to honor you. We want to make sure you see the impact your donations are having on those you chose to support and help.

We want to give you an update regarding the impact this project is having to bring sustainable access to clean water and sanitation to neighboring schools in the water-stressed region of Haiti.

As you might be aware, in Haiti only 20% of the rural population has access to a basic water service while 80 percent of the rural population have no access to any kind of water system. What is special about this project, is that we are trying to create a system powered kiosks on school premises. Improving access to clean water in schools and communities, this means providing a safe and healthy learning environment for children. Therefore we can eliminate time wasted collecting water, minimizing the risk of water-borne illnesses, thereby contributing to their participation and performance at school, particularly for girls. During our multiple site visits, we realized that the children of the remote  Primary schools' areas we visited cannot wait to get access to safe drinking water, to wash their hands to protect them against the disease.

One problem thus, this project has very little amount of people who contributed to reaching the intended goal, there are no funds to continue our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 has brought uncertain, challenging times for all of us. No matter the obstacles, Kris and DMI remain committed to saving lives by providing vulnerable families with hygiene kits and other life-saving assistance. A simple kit – consisting of soap, water purification tools, and hygiene products many of us take for granted – could mean the difference between life and death for the people we serve—and your generosity is what makes this positive change possible.

There's still time for your compassion to go even further. Join us in making the world a little brighter by sharing the link below!

Thank you for taking the time to catch up with us. 

Many, Many Blessings!

And please stay healthy!!!
