The Water Crisis


In Hinche, Haiti, in the village of Laby, people are struggling to find clean water.

Today, 2 billion people drank from, bathed in and did laundry in the same, unclean water.

Today, at least 10 million women and children walked up to 10 miles to gather water for their families.

Today, over 9,000 people died from lack of clean water and sanitation in the world.

Today, more people have access to a cell phone than a latrine.

Today, if you took the untreated excrement around the world, it would fill the Superdome in 3 days.

Today, 1.2 billion people do not have a way to ensure hygienic separation of humans from their own waste.

With Justice Water, we are able to equip and empower nationals on the island of Hispaniola, as well as other long term workers there. We focus on empowering, educating and working alongside the people on this island for long term success. Using materials that can be found in the area, and leaning into the local knowledge, we have helped make a small dent in the water crisis on the island of Hispaniola and all over the world.

Since its inception in 2011, Justice Water has been able to train over 600 people: women, men and children in the areas of sanitation, hygiene and water safety.

We have also been able to partner with these local friends and provide clean water and/or sanitation for almost 4,000 people on the island.
