img_1599Unemployment rates in Haiti are around an astounding 70% and it is no different in Source Matelas. This leaves families with hard decisions to make when determining how to afford basics like food, water, and their children’s education. Thanks to generous donations on our Facebook cause, Haiti Water Project was able to provide a well at a Nazarene church and school that is offering water freely to the community and making these decisions just a little easier.

  1. I was sitting here thinking about the sickness and poor water conditions in Haiti and thought to myself if I was wealthy, I would pay a well drilling contractor to send his equipment to Haiti and start drilling clean water wells all over the island. Of course, I am not wealthy so my next thought was what if I could volunteer my time to help a well driller that might already be involved in providing clean water in Haiti. A quick search of the Internet led me to this site.

    I think what you are doing is one of the greatest efforts. Clean water is a basic necessity for those who have so little. I commend you on your efforts and I will sleep better tonight knowing the job is getting done. Thank you from my heart.

  3. I commend you for undertaking this great challenge. Because for far too long this great country has been overlooked by insiders and outsiders. And it’s about time to help the people of Haiti to learn how to fish for themselves but, not only giving them fishes all the time. It’s time to bring about education in all levels specially in the agriculture, manufacture and health departments and many more such as water project like your program.
    Thank you.
