Summary

Community2Community, Inc has launched a Water & Sanitation Initiative that has successfully helped to decrease the number of Cholera outbreaks within our partner communities located in a rural village in Haiti. Our goal is to complete the work we've started by raising funds necessary to finish building much needed Latrines in our rural communities to continue containing cholera epidemic and the Water Distribution System which allows continued access to clean water for basic daily living needs.

Challenge

According to the National Geographic 777,000 Haitians have been afflicted over the past several years with Cholera becoming an epidemic, which has reportedly killed nearly 10,000 people to date. Cholera is spread through drinking water or food contamination and large epidemics are often times a result of the main water supply being contaminated by fecal matter. Our partner community was no different, without access to formal sanitation or clean potable water many became sick and some even died.

Solution

Through the Water & Sanitation initiative we are able to work with our partner community and support them financially in the construction of 70 Latrines by 2018. Since the launch of the water & sanitation initiative reports of Cholera has drastically decreased, there has been no reports of any new cases or deaths. Providing access to clean water and proper sanitation promotes community health and enables this community to engage in vital daily activities such as bathing, cooking & cleaning.

Long-Term Impact

Through this initiative two communities will have been encouraged to cultivate and build up their community through meaningful engagement. Not only will they have gained access to clean water and proper sanitation, they will also hopefully experience a feeling of accomplishment. It is our mission that this community becomes independent & self-driven which will create and promote their longevity and allows for better opportunities for upcoming generations to thrive and sustain self-sufficiency.
