Project 509 is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides access to clean drinking water in remote mountain communities in Haiti through building effective and sustainable rain catchment systems. The communities, mainly children, walk up to 4 hours round trip each day just to carry drinking water home from sources that are almost always contaminated. For additional information, please go here.
Currently, our team is on the ground in Haiti repairing some of our systems that have been been severally damaged from Hurricane Matthew.
We would love to have you join us for the evening! Please feel free to forward this along to any family and friends that might be interested.
