Raised Remaining


Help Lambi Fund of Haiti build 880 community latrines for rural communities to meet increasing sanitation needs as people move to the countryside post-earthquake.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Immense outmigration from Port-au-Prince to rural areas has left rural communities in desperate need of improved sanitation facilities. Some village populations doubled overnight, making latrines an immediate concern in order to maintain a clean environment, decrease the spread of disease and keep drinking water sources clean.

How will this project solve this problem?

Help communities build 880 latrines and provide sanitation training to maintain clean environments and promote higher levels of health following the earthquake. These latrines will address the sanitation needs of 1000s moving to rural areas.

Potential Long Term Impact

Addressing these urgent immediate needs of sanitation will provide a clean environment and improved health for locals, while keeping local drinking water sources clean.
