Clean water is hard to come by in Haiti. Too many rivers are filled with trash and sewage, and in this tropical climate, the water is a breeding ground for disease.

That's why our Capuchin friars have visited other countries to learn and implement best practices for a clean water and efficient waste removal program.

And as part of the process, the friars are creating a micro business that employs Haitians to collect the plastic that's been discarded in the rivers.

Your donation today will help ensure that men, women and children in Haiti will have access to safe, clean water. You'll also help employ Haitians living in extreme poverty.
