2 for 1: Safe Drinking Water & Planting Trees

by Lambi Fund of Haiti


This project has dual benefits: Provide safe drinking water for 600 families in Haiti AND plant 100,000 trees to reforest the surrounding area. Healthy children + healthy land = hope for the future.

Almost 1/3 of Haitians have no access to safe drinking water, resulting in disease and a high death rate for children. Haiti is described by the U.N. as one of the most degraded countries in the world. Without trees to protect the land, flooding from hurricanes destroys homes, lives, farmland and ecosystems. Our poorest neighbor in the Western Hemisphere needs an urgent plan to plant trees and provide safe water for 600 peasants in the village of Chato.


Peasants in Chato asked Lambi to help build a network of 10 water cisterns. They also want to reforest the area with 100,000 trees. They will provide the labor and, with your help, Lambi will provide construction materials, training and seedlings.

Long-Term Impact

Safe water means healthier children, less illness. Women and children can get an education instead of fetching water from a distant source. More trees mean flood control, improved land for farming due to less soil erosion and more food.
