It's About People and Communities...

By Marie-Rose Romain Murphy | Servant Leader

Dear Friend,

First of all, we want to thank you for your consistent support and tell you that it continues to be needed...

The August 14, 2021 Earthquake in Haiti destroyed 90% of the community cisterns of Pestel, a town located in the South of Haiti. Yes, it’s 2023, and the rebuilding continues!


This is Jackson, a longtime Community Organizer of Pestel and one of our Community Leaders Representatives, talking to Clémita, a community resident who benefited from Fondation Communautaire Haitienne-Espwa/The Haïti Community Foundation’s Family Water Cistern Repair Initiative. Clémita used to walk 20 kilometers to get a gallon of water. She has regained water access and agreed to share it with her neighbors.

This is part of an initiative that repaired three large community cisterns and five family cisterns that serve tens of thousands of residents, in collaboration with community leaders and the City of Pestel who worked with us on identifying communities and people most in need. The community design and approval process was critical.

There’s a lot of talk about the situation in Haiti. The political situation is extremely complex, and so is the humanitarian context. Our organization’s focus ( and what keeps me and us grounded) is working with communities to help them meet their needs and their priorities. The politics are dire. Our people shouldn’t have to endure and suffer…We fight with and for them for a more manageable life and a better future.

Thank you again for your support!

Warmest regards,

Marie-Rose, on behalf of the Haitian communities that we serve through ESPWA and the Haiti Community Foundation Network
