Clean Water from New Wells
The residents of Anse-A-Galets on the island of LaGonave in Haiti were so far from drinkable water that each family sent at least one person on a long journey every day with a large container to fetch water. Often this family member was an older child who was unable to attend school because they were occupied with the water chores. In addition, the water that they found was often contaminated, leading to serious health problems.
A Big Donation!
A Schramm well drilling rig was purchased and moved to La Gonave. The people of Anse-A-Galets now have wells providing good, clean drinking water right in their village. The drilling rig has been moved to additional locations on the island of LaGonave, drilling dozens of fresh water wells that provide clean drinking water for thousands of desperately poor families. The well drilling rig was paid for in large part through donations that were received during a Guts Church (Tulsa) “Tougher than Hell” motorcycle rally. Guts Church works along with Celebrate Jesus of Haiti to improve the living conditions of some of the poorest people on earth. Thank you to everyone involved!
