Clean Water and Hands for Haiti
We operate a school in Montrouis, Haiti, educating 250 children from Preschool to Grade 9. We employ 17 Haitian staff including school Directors, teachers, administrative support, and ancillary services like nurses and cooks for our hot lunch program.
Like schools across Canada ours, Institute Mixte Remax, is closed due to the concerns about the spread of Covid-19.
Our school will re-open, when it is safe to do so. We will ensure our school is equipped to help fight the virus in Haiti, not spread it.
We are raising funds to purchase filters to filter the water from our on-site well, and build a hand washing station for our staff and students.
This project will require one-time costs such as the purchase of filters, a 500 gallon water holding tank, and construction of a hand washing station which will include 5 sinks. Ongoing costs include boxes of soap, and gasoline to operate the generator to pump the water from the well to the water holding tank.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 for this legacy, permanent project for our school.
Infection control is in all our hands! Let's help fight the virus in Haiti!
