Why “Save God’s Children should intervene in this sector?
In Haiti, extreme poverty declined from 31 to 24% between 2000 and 2012. However, extreme poverty rates stayed largely the same in rural areas for 12 years. Only 11% of Haitians in the countryside have access to everything compared with 63% in the cities. In fact, around 40% of Haiti’s rural population uses non-protected water sources like rivers or unprotected well, increasing the risks to contract diseases. But there are still mammy others in rural Haiti that are too far from clean water sources and are in high risk in using contaminated water.
