The Lambi Fund of Haiti completed 20 cisterns, 10 in Lacoma and 10 in Didyet due to the generosity of all of our donors. Didyet and Lakoma are located in the commune of Jean Rabel. This area is known for its rigorous dry season and was most affected during the drought of 2014 - 2015.
This area was also hit during Hurricane Mattews. Although we were also affected in the Northwest of Haiti, we are please that during the visit effected by the Lambi staff on october, there was no reported cases of cholera in the area while the government administration reports 150 new cases emerging in the affected areas, according to the civil protection office. Having water protected and secure is one of the ways we can reduce the impact of cholera and its spread. This region now counts 57 cisterns providing water the families living there and you were part of the solution as you helped build 20 of them.
The work of the Lambi Fund is not finished although this project is complete with the help of many foundations and your contribution we reached our goal of 20 cisterns. Lambi has already began the construction of 10 more cisterns in Mawotye. Our sustainable goal of assuring access to water for over 7500 families is well underway.
Thank you for your support. Thank you for choosing to be part of the solution.
