Community-Led Sanitation in 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.
