I returned from Haiti this weekend after a seven-day mission to help install a water filtration system at a church and school in the village of Papette. Our team of 10 from Fall Creek Wesleyan Church was stretched pretty good, but we accomplished the goal.
Some 1,200 gallons per day of purified water is not available to the people in that community.
In a country where one in five children dies from water-borne disease, that feels like a huge thing. In a country of 9 million people, most of them living without access to a clean water source, it seems incredibly small.
