Three months ago, I told you that we had 10 more cisterns to go. Well we are done. People came together created hand in hand access to 315,000 gallons of water for 2222 families. It started long ago last year when the earth parched, the trees wilted; the leaves remaining became encrusted with a grayish cover thirsting for a drop of water. It has long past the four months that we named a dry season but this one continues and seven months later we had to admit we are in the middle of a drought but not one alert came from the institutions of care and not one bucket of water was brought in as an alternative or option, when the rivers stopped flowing.
In a country where people have been said to be "resilient", the most resilient people are not often visible. But they are thinking, on their feet, in remote villages formulting strategies that work. They came to Lambi Fund, in partnership, having defined their primary need: "access to water". It is their initiatives that build a bridge to survival.
We are so grateful that 133 persons joined you in partnership with the Lambi Fund of Haiti and made their effort possible with our collective resources. The communities of Mayotye, Lacoma and Dytiet have changed for the better because we unified forces and made it happen.
Peole in Lacoma are saying "Chapo ba" a term of reverence for the goodness of you and the sharing that it dignifies and the partnership that will sustain overtime.
Because of your generosity and the generosityFamily and the foundations that joined us, we are now adding 10 more to finish in November of this 2015. We are so grateful!
Thank you. Let us remain in partnership supporting creative local solutions in rural Haiti.
