Project Details

At Healing Hands, we believe that no one should live without love or water! Now, in the remote village of Lafito in Haiti, more than 500 precious souls will know God's love because of your gift of clean water. Much like the Samaritan woman in John 4, when these people come to draw clean drinking water, they will also have the opportunity to encounter the "living water" of Jesus. As always, God does the healing, but He is using your hands (and feet) to do it.
Keep walking, McKenzie!

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up" - Galatians 6:9

The Difference It Made!

Meet Richardson

Richardson is a taxi driver who works at a station in Lafito, Haiti. Because most people do not own personal vehicles in Haiti, most get around by "taxi motorcycles." There are motorcycle stations throughout towns and villages so that it is easy to find a 'taxi' at any time of day. Richardson is one of many drivers who spends much of his time at the station in Lafito where the new water pump was installed. In addition to the taxi drivers, there are many other frequent visitors to the pump from this community. It is now so convenient for everyone in the area to fill their jugs for their households.

According to Richardson, many of the drivers throughout the day drink from the pump, and because the pump is placed at a busy intersection, people from all over come to the pump to get water. The pump not only offers perfect drinking water, but the water is used for bathing, preparing food, and fulfills many other needs!
