SPRINGS OF HOPE

HEALTH, WATER, & SANITATION

Jesus answered, 'Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.

John 4:13-14

In Boukeron, most deaths are caused by a basic lack of sanitation. The only access to drinking water is from the river, which is also where they take baths, wash clothes, and have animals refresh. There are no latrines in the area, so people use the restroom behind the trees, sprouting many preventable diseases. 

S.A.V.E. has built a few water wells and latrines, but much of the community is still in need. Other solutions for nondrinking water include gutter systems that collect daily rainshowers. We also plan to provide a mobile medical clinic that will host different services of care, the first in the area. By providing these basic essentials, the people of Boukeron will be healthier and have more energy to perform their jobs and provide for themselves. 

If you have any ideas on helping the health sector, we would love to hear from you! Just email us at haiti@teensave.org. 

We hope that one day everyone in Boukeron will have access to clean drinking water and will be able to live healthier.

Only a small portion of people in the countryside of Haiti have access to clean drinking water. By providing a well in the community, people will be healthier and will have more time to tend to other matters.

Community Water Well

A cistern is an effective alternative to a well for smaller groups or individual families. These containers catch the rainwater coming off of the roof, providing extra water for drinking and other needs.

Now that Boukeron's first mobile clinic has been set up, it will need to be restocked for each trip. Without medication, vaccines, bandages, and other medical supplies, the clinic cannot function.
