ASH hopes to serve these communities by addressing urgent public health needs by providing access to clean water in these communities. ASH hopes to do this by providing emergency relief kits to as many families as possible during the months of October, November and December.
In the longer term, ASH will continue to work along the communities of Boutin (Croix des Bouquets) and Les Caye focusing on water, sanitation and hygiene issues. ASH will be working over the next several years to promote sustainable and longer term solutions to providing access to clean water to the members of these communities.
