Haiti is a small nation of about 11 million people located in the Caribbean Sea on the western third of the island of Hispaniola, just 600 miles off the coast of Florida. This tiny nation was once known for its lush, natural beauty, but today is one of the most underdeveloped countries in the world. Each and every day the people face the crippling effects of poverty, undrinkable water, high infant mortality, poor medical care, illiteracy and high unemployment. However, given the opportunity, the Haitian people will help themselves. Haiti Outreach is committed to providing that opportunity.
Haiti Outreach’s working base is located in the town of Pignon, in the Nord Department. Currently, most of our projects are focused on increasing sustainable clean water access in communities in the Centre, Nord, Nord-est, Ouest and Sud departments of Haiti.
Haiti Outreach has worked incredibly hard to increase the number of people with sustainable clean water access. The number of communities we have worked with continues to grow!
- Over 500 community managed wells or water systems
- Over 265,000 people impacted
