As a community we are called to help others in need. Through much discernment WS/WBHS’ mission has become to provide safe water to Haitians. Safe water is not available to the people of Haiti and will not be made available for quite some time. The lack of something as simple as clean water causes many diseases and deaths.
When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. This Bible verse speaks to the heart of our call to mission. The community will help take up their cross and provide. We will not forsake the people of Haiti.
One in 9 children in Haiti dies before the age of 5. 17% of those deaths are due to unsafe water. Unclean water is responsible for 80% of the diseases that plague Haiti. Our call is to help those we can. WS/WBHS have come a long way since the beginning of this mission.
