Drops of Hope: Haiti

Vapur & Calvary Community Church, Westlake Village, CA:
Helping Haitians in Wake of Quake

On Jan. 12, 2010, Haiti was rocked by a 7.0-magnitude earthquake. Haiti, one of the poorest nations in the Western Hemisphere, has a population of over nine million. With this large disparity in wealth, compared to other countries, and a high density population, this massive quake caused a devastating amount of destruction.

Hundreds of volunteers, including those from Calvary Community Church in Westlake Village, CA, have gone to this country to help in any way they can. But, while much aid has been delivered to Haiti, it isn’t nearly enough. Three million people in Haiti are still in need of food and clean water.

In the aftermath of this quake, Vapur has teamed up with Calvary Community Church to build reservoirs and provide clean drinking water in areas near Port-au-Prince. Vapur and Calvary strongly believe that the Haitian’s need for clean drinking water is a top priority now.

Since January, Calvary volunteers have made multiple trips, helping the Haitians build two reservoirs in the community of Lamothe, Haiti. Those reservoirs provide clean accessible drinking water to a community of over 7,000 people. This is a small yet vital step towards re-building the country. In order to fund future clean water projects in Haiti, efforts now turn to selling the Drops of Hope: Haiti Vapur Anti-Bottles.


Water is the source of life, so Vapur and Calvary will work together to help bring new life back into this country torn apart by natural disaster.
