Community Well Drilling
Providing clean drinking water for the communities in, and the towns surrounding, Grand-Goave is essential to meeting the basic health and sanitation needs of the people. Every well drilled by Haiti ARISE Ministries uses the service Blue Ridge Well Drilling, a Mennonite drilling mission in Haiti, and is ensured to be far from polluting latrines and other contaminated water sources.
To date, Haiti ARISE has drilled ten wells throughout Grand-Goave and even into Fauche and Tapion, as well as four wells on our properties that are accessible to the public. Thousands have benefited from the clean drinking water our wells provide. Each well is at least 150 feet deep and have all been tested to be free of contaminations that were found common in other community water sources, including the city water.
Funding for many of the community wells has been provided from Hungry For Life, a partnering Canadian charity.
Estimated Cost per Well: $3,500 US.
