Water Cistern for a Community

Gives 1 community cistern
Gift Description:
For $5,000, you can build a cistern to capture and store over 4,500 gallons of rainwater. The cisterns built by the Lambi Fund of Haiti have faucets to maintain water purity, promote conservation, and allow community members reliable access to water. Gifting a clean water tank to one village gives them a supply of fresh water year round, which is very important, as access to clean drinking water is a serious problem in Haiti. Haiti is lucky in that many parts of the country receive substantial amounts of rainfall throughout the year. Yet, without a method to catch and store the water, rain only provides drinking water during the rainy season. Dry seasons force women and children to walk long distances to retrieve water and subject everyone to the spread of cholera and diarrheal diseases by drinking unsanitary water. Your long-lasting gift will change lives in a community in Haiti for generations to come.
