GIVE THE GIFT OF WATER REPORT

 

     Dear Friends and Partners,

This report is another chance for DMI and team to thank you!

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 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.

With the past national lockdown in Haiti, all schools were closed, and therefore, our usual program schemes through the churches, schools, and communities were changed. However, many of the community leaders who run the the programs took steps, behind the scenes to get water, hygiene kits, and COVID-19 nessecities to these communities as quickly as possible, knowing they will be thirsty, literally. Our operations fixing broken water pumps had to be closed.

Despite these challenges, we are confident we can move forward quickly, now that restrictions in Haiti have been eased. The Project DMI Water Program is ready, and the structures have been line up. As part of our standard procedure, our next step will be performing baseline surveys in the communities. We will interview village leaders, households, teachers and health professionals to establish a baseline and measure progress around health and community satisfaction parameters of the end-users. Depending on the COVID19 developments, we aim to open the taps in approximately one month with your help.

As you might be aware, in Haiti only 20% of the rural population has access to a basic water service while 80 per cent 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 limited amount  of people who contributed  to reach the intended goal, there is no funds left to continue on after our response to COVID-19 pandemic, with that in mind, MDLM has turned GIVE THE GIFT OF WATER! Project into a COVID-19 RELIEF FUND

Report for Fight Near Starvation in Rural Haiti!

 

     Dear Friends and Partners,

This report is another chance for DMI and team to thank you!

Your support helps ensure that we can continue helping our community. We know there are a lot of other ways you could have spent this money, but chose us, we feel privileged that you chose to invest in our work. You are now part of our community and we honored to have you. We want to make sure you see the impact your donations are having on those you chose to support.

With the current national lockdown in Haiti, all schools were closed, and therefore, our usual feeding schemes through the churches, schools are not open. However, many of the community leaders who run the Food pantries are taking the food to feed to hungry in their communities, at home which includes children and adults who would normally be fed through their school’s cafeteria or at food pantrie/churches' kitchen. 

Our team-Fight Near Starvation in Rural areas of Haiti has been working tirelessly, with your support to ensure that the hundreds of starving, destitute people in our communities are being fed. To date, we have been able to distribute hundreds of thousands of meals, but there are still many, more mouths to feed and people to reach. With that in mind, MDLM has turned Fight Near Starvation Project into a COVID-19 Hunger Relief. Hunger  Haiti Project #43473

Dear Friends and Partners, we have no word to thank you for your continued support of DMI PROJECTS. Right now, more parents are able to enjoy precious time with their children.

Your support and donations are helping children and families in Haiti and around the world survive deadly disease, hunger and get the nutrients they need to regain their strength. You are given parents the ultimate gift: the assurance that their children, once deadly ill, will be okay after all. Right now, more parents are able to enjoy precious time with their children.

10 years ago on January 12, 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck near Port-au-Prince, Haiti, killing an estimated 220,000 people, injuring 300,000 and displacing 1.5 million people from their homes. The quake destroyed infrastructure, caused a deep economic recession, and led to the country’s first  cholera outbreak, which grew into an epidemic. 

 Piriou says, “Haiti was the poorest country in the Northern Hemisphere before the earthquake hit, and its people already faced glaring unmet needs,”  “This catastrophe exposed long-standing weaknesses in the country’s governance, infrastructure, and basic systems.”

We've done our very best to show the impact you make for children and families in need.  But it's not easy— every mother, father, and child we meet has their own story and experience with the lifesaving programs you support. 

We've narrowed down our search to four photos that capture some of these stories and the impact we've made together. Please check them out in the photos areas below.

WHICH PHOTO IS YOUR FAVORITE?

1. A family in North Haiti pumping Reliable, Safe, and Clean water!

2. A single mother of 3 getting food and funds to go home to her hungry children!

4. A group of children sit patiently for the Food Distribution to take place, the only meal of the day!
