This afternoon the Miss World Organisation received some fantastic news from Dr Ben Fredrick, the President of the Thriving Villages International Organisation and liaison with the Miss World Organisation on action taking place in Haiti.

Here is the letter that we received!


“Hi guys,

We received some photos of the drill rig crossing the River Glaz (which is about the southernmost part of Pestel).  Evens is with the crew and they stayed last night at the new Guest House run by Sisters Fidelis, Jo, and Vicky.  The trip took them 13 hours (ugh!!) to travel from Port-au-Prince to Pestel.

Evens wrote that they will plan to drill today!!  They expect to have to drill very deep to hit water, and we are hopeful that when they do hit water it will be fresh water and not salty. Please pray that they hit fresh water.  The region of Pestel is incredibly water-deprived.  The World Health Organization considers a village water deprived if people have to travel more than 30 minutes roundtrip.  In Pestel many routinely travel 2 hours one way.

Ben
President, Thriving Villages International

This is a step in the right direction in Pestel, with the money raised by the Miss World Contestants going to really good use, bringing water to those that need it most.

If the drilling is successful it will be a vital lifeline for the villagers, and bring untold improvement to the quality of life for many.

However this is just one of many steps that need to be taken to raise the standard of living in Haiti, and Miss World will continue this journey to help make a better future for Pestel, and for Haiti as a whole.
