There are many community transformation programs you can invest in to help HAM care for Grand-Goave and the surrounding areas. By doing so, you have the opportunity to transform a family or even a whole community.
Water wells $7500 per well. The need for clean drinking water is the highest priority in the community. Women and children from the surrounding area typically walk around 5 km two or three times a day. Drilling for a clean source of water typically reduces disease in rural communities by over 50%. The community of Grand-Goave can benefit from at least 10 more water wells.
