Since January’s earthquake, improving rural Sanitation and Hygiene in Haiti has been a priority of Lambi Fund’s.  Our field monitors have been working with community organizations in the Northwest to develop a sustainable sanitation plan that will provide these populations with access to latrines.  Through conversations with these local groups, it has been decided that the latrines will be built in community centers like local grain mills.  This will provide community members with equal access and group members will be able to oversee the management and maintenance of the latrines. 

Continued support for this project is greatly needed though, as the need for latrines far exceeds Lambi Fund’s financial resources.    The purchase of one latrine provides approximately 25 individuals with access to proper sanitation- exponentially improving their overall health, keeping the local environment clean and ensuring local water sources are not contaminated.  Together we can provide a clean and healthy environment for all communities in rural Haiti.

It’s been nearly six months since January’s devastating earthquake hit Haiti. While Haiti still has a long road to recovery, many small victories have been made. The Lambi Fund of Haiti has been working ardently with local peasant organizations throughout rural Haiti to promote proper hygiene and sanitation. Thanks to your donation, Lambi Fund has been able to empower these organizations as community leaders map out plans for latrines in their communities. Grassroots leaders have been working hand in hand with the Lambi Fund of Haiti and water sanitation experts to determine ideal locations for latrines, the formation of local oversight committees and plans for construction and implementation.

With these important steps for planning well underway, communities throughout rural Haiti are no longer dreaming of improved methods of sanitation, but working to attain them. Many thanks for your continued support of the construction of community latrines in rural Haiti. Your assistance allows even more local Haitians enjoy the improved health and cleaner living environments that accompany proper sanitation.
