Food and Water for Grande Saline

The 2019 Health for Haiti class is home safe and readjusting to the cold weather, but our projects continue in sunny Grande Saline, Haiti.

Nearly 15,000 gallons of safe drinking water were distributed this week and we expect work on the perimeter wall to be finished very soon. Our next initiative will be to help the community to build a pavilion that will be used to support solar panels to power the system.

The big garden looks beautiful and, thanks to the hard work of the farmers, the pepper plants are growing. This cash crop of peppers will generate income that can be used to purchase food for the school lunch program.

We thank our community partners in Grande Saline for their vision, their hope, and their hard work. SUNY Broome Health for Haiti is proud to stand beside you as you strive for a better future.
