Celebrate the beauty of Haiti this World Water Day

Campaign Details

Campaign Code: LifePump – 70

People are left behind without reliable water for many reasons, one of which is the technological failure of hand pumps in rural areas. This is a problem that we at Design Outreach seek to address. By providing access to reliable water through sustainable and appropriate technology, we can serve those who are often overlooked.

This World Water Day, we invite you to remember with us those who are often forgotten.

The country of Haiti has been experiencing civil unrest and instability over the past few months. As a result, the already challenging work of providing rural water access has become increasingly more difficult. It is our prayer that God would bring peace to the country of Haiti and its people so that our work and the work of our partners can continue. Haiti is a beautiful country and is home to millions of beautiful people who are being left behind.

This week, we invite you to not only remember the millions of people in Haiti who are often left behind, but also to celebrate the opportunity we have to serve alongside one another to bring hope to Haiti

Join us by giving to fund a LifePump for a community in Haiti. Thanks to a generous partner, each donation will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $10,000. With this match, we will be able to provide TWO communities in Haiti with a LifePump, ensuring reliable water access and creating opportunities to thrive.

About the LifePump Project

Design Outreach is collaborating with overseas partners, local governments in Africa and Haiti, and individuals like YOU to install LifePumps across the globe.

More than 663 million people around the world do not have access to clean water. Many women and children walk 3 to 5 miles a day to find water. Design Outreach seeks to make a significant impact on these statistics through the LifePump, a deep-reaching, durable hand pump designed to last years with minimal maintenance. Thousands of lives in Kenya, Ethiopia, Mali, Malawi, Zambia, and Haiti already have been directly impacted by the installation of LifePumps. ​

We are very grateful for our fundraising champions and many others for funding our future and sponsoring LifePump​s​™ ​for villages in Africa and Haiti. The​se pumps will provide long-lasting, clean water for tens of thousands of people who desperately need it.
