The northwest region of Haiti is currently experiencing an intense 3-year drought in which most farmers have not been able to grow any crops, or sustain the lively hood of their animals. In Grand Diable and its surrounding villages, the majority are without adequate housing or latrines and lack water — one of the most basic necessities of life.
This project seeks to provide families with a concrete water cistern which is replenished primarily by Lemuel water trucks, as well as the occasional rainfall in the hurricane season. This not only enables families to have a large, readily available source of clean drinking water, but also to make a small income by selling gallons of water to other members of the community.
Lemuel is also continuing to work on a water expansion project which will pipe water from a recently drilled well into the community.
Additional projects include various community development projects benefiting the surrounding community.
