The municipality of Cavaillon is located in the south of Haiti. She was stricken after Hurricane Matthew. Several schools were built after the 2011 earthquake in the locality of Cavaillon: Sudre, Tellier and Léger. The biggest problem of these schools is access to drinking water.
The ESSOR association works in Haiti in the following areas: social, education and health. She works in partnership with a local association: KRIK.
Together, they targeted several schools located in remote communities in the center of Cavaillon to help children who live in fragile areas where cholera cases have been detected.
It is often necessary to walk up to 2 hours from their homes to access drinking water points that are mostly poorly maintained.
This chore of water is often reserved for children (especially girls) which weakens their health (considerable physical effort) and can be a drag on their schooling. Some families are forced to use the water of the Cavaillon River. The national reports state that only 10% of households have access to a drinking water point.
It is in this context that the ESSOR association and the endowment fund team up to allow all these children to have access to drinking water.
