Making a Difference

To date, dozens of trips have been organized to over 10 countries involving hundreds of participants.

Just one of many success stories

In 1989 a Rayjon work group together with local community members constructed 7 water cisterns in the rural community of  Lauture, Haiti. This project became the catalyst for ongoing development of water collection and containment systems throughout the mountain region.

Today there are over 400 cisterns that provide families with easy access to water for cooking, drinking and cleaning. These families no longer have to walk several kilometers for their water supply.

A second phase of this project was initiated has been underway through the mid 1990′s. Grass roofs on homes have been replaced with tin and fitted with eaves-troughs to channel the precious rainwater into the cisterns built adjacent to the homes.
