Project Details

THE PARTNERS

The Fondation Saint Luc 

The Fondation Saint Luc is a Haitian non-profit Catholic organization working in the field of education, health care, and community development, as well as in agricultural and emergency management and every year around 90,000 people benefit from its projects. Founded by Father Rick Frechette CP, American priest and doctor, and developed and expanded under the leadership of Jean Nebez Agustin, the Foundation is the result of over 26 years of working experience in Haiti.

Special emphasis is placed on working with young Haitians, many of them raised in the orphanages of Nos Petits Freres et Soeurs, sharing with them a vision of the development of Haiti based on hard work, moral integrity, Christian values, and the insights elicited from the young Haitians themselves. The Foundation St. Luc’s projects employ over 1,000 people.

The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation

The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation works to protect the environment and promote sustainable development. Active at international level, the Foundation focuses its actions on three main areas: limiting the effects of climate change and promoting renewable energies, preserving biodiversity, managing water resources and combating desertification.
The Foundation works in three main geographical areas: the Mediterranean Basin, the Polar Regions and the Least Developed Countries. Find out more at: https://www.fpa2.org/

THE PROJECT

Since 2013, the Foundation has supported a tanker truck that distributes water in the slums of Cité Soleil every day, three times a day, 6 days a week. Having ascertained the effectiveness and the real need for the project, since 2014 the Foundation has doubled its commitment with a second truck.

ABF ACTIONS

The Andrea Bocelli Foundation supports:

  • The distribution of drinking water in the slums using a 6x6 tanker truck, 3 times a day, 6 days a week.
  • The distribution of drinking water in the slums using a 10x10 tanker truck, 3 times a day, 6 days a week.
  • The annual maintenance costs of the 2 trucks.
  • The purchase of water and oil.
  • The annual cost of employees’ salaries.

THE CONTEXT

A recent UNICEF report stated that over 9 million people in Haiti live without access to water. In the capital of Port au Prince, many of the main water pipes were destroyed in the 2010 earthquake, as well as many of the wells, which are currently dry. The possibility of receiving clean water every day for drinking, cooking, and personal hygiene is essential for survival, but also to prevent the spread of disease, especially cholera and epidemics related to poor hygiene or lack thereof.
