Beauty Water Plans to Build Five Wells in Haiti
By Jacques Jean-Baptiste
Atlanta based company Beauty Water USA has joined forces with Haiti Outreach Inc., to bring much needed fresh, clean water to an area of Haiti where drinking water is scarce.
The Beauty Water Wells Company will work to construct five wells that are projected to directly improve the quality of life for more than 15,000 men, women and children in the province of Trou-du-Nord.
“The trajectory of this campaign is more than just clean water.” says Beauty Water co-owner Vonytza Ciné. “It’s about empowerment communities and providing them with basic and necessary resources to thrive.”
The cost for each well is $15,000 and the company has a goal of raising $150,000; enough to dig five wells, provide maintenance, and make a life-changing impact in Trou-du-Nord.
Their efforts are being supported by AT&T, Jakki Colours Salon, Nancy’s Chicago Pizza Midtown and Empire Sports Bar to name a few.
