Let's make a change this World Toilet Day

Today is World Toilet Day- a day not only to recognize the millions around the world who do not have access to proper toilets and sanitation on a daily basis, but also a day to take action.  The Lambi Fund of Haiti's efforts to build latrines in rural Haiti is now more important than ever.

The cholera outbreak is sweeping Haiti. This deadly infection strikes fast - over 1,000 have died and now that it has reached the capitol, the death toll is sure to rise.

These are heartbreaking circumstances for a country that has already faced an unimaginable year of hardships.  Many of Lambi Fund's grassroots partners in the Artibonite Valley, where the first cases of cholera were reported, have lost dear friends, family, and loved ones.  Needless to say, this is indeed a very serious and stressful situation - Lambi Fund would like to extend our solidarity and condolences to our staff members, colleagues, and partner organizations during this difficult time.

Sometimes frightening events like this can be paralyzing, but there’s no need to feel helpless.  Lambi Fund is working in this very region of Haiti to build proper latrines that will protect valuable water sources from contamination.   At the same time Lambi Fund is working with our grassroots partners in communities throughout the country to provide means of water purification to ensure that drinking water is clean and safe.  

You can help solve this crisis by supporting Lambi Fund's efforts to build latrines today.
