Water for Jerusalem
Local Haitians flooded the hillside near SHH's water drilling site in Jerusalem in September 2012 with anticipation over the possibility of having local water access for the first time in a very long time. On the second day of drilling, the opportunity of finding an underground water source was beginning to look grim as no evidence of water had been found. The drill operator reported that he could only drill ten feet further before having to abort the operation altogether, but in the last few available feet of drilling, water burst to the surface as onlookers cheered with excitement.
Adults, children, adoptive parents and even SHH's dear friend Pastor Rigaud, witnessed the event with smiles of gratitude. In what is a huge success for all, free and clean water is now available for the many families in Jerusalem!
