Beginning in April of 2008 and on a continuing basis, Haiti Clean Water Project. GTAH committed to helping communities in Haiti , particularly those in the poorest areas like the Plateau Central to have access to clean drinking water so as to reduce and hopefully eliminate the incidences of illnesses experienced by the people as a result of water borne diseases. Water born diseases take a very high toll in lives lost, particularly amongst children and infants. GTAH’s support is ongoing. In June 2008 GTAH partnered with fellow NGOs, World Care and HOPEH to hold a fundraiser in Manhattan to raise funds to purchase and install personal water purification equipment for 2000 households in Juampas and other homes in the Central Plateau. With the support of the Consul General of Haiti in New York , the event attracted the support of a number of Haitian artists, recording artists, United Nations staff and members of the Haitian community in New York . At the end of the event a sum of $9,000 was presented to World Care as GTAH’s first contribution towards the clean water project. This contribution will allow World Care to purchase enough water purification equipment for 200 households.
