Water Fountains: Water is core to life and to the ministry of WISH. We provide water for a village of over 30,000 people at 19 fountains. These fountains are strategically located to serve the neighborhoods of the village. The fountains are in need of an update. We are looking for churches, organizations, or individuals to sponsor a fountain. It costs approximately $10,000 to replace each fountain, which includes the pipes. Replacement of the fountains and the laying of new stainless steel pipe has begun!
Feeding Program: WISH feeds more than 100 impoverished children a meal of rice and beans each day. The cost is $0.35 per child per day. A gift of $35.00 will provide 100 protein and carbohydrate rich meals for hungry children.
Solar Power: WISH provides daily electric power to major buildings in Anse-a-Galet, including the WISH compound, Ice Plant, Welding Shop, Wesleyan Hospital, Dental Clinic, Resource Center and Youth Center, and the village Police Statiaon. The power is currently produced with diesel generators. Our vision is to install a Solar Power System. The estimated cost is $450,000. WISH is preparing to complete Phase 1 of the solar project soon.
Island Truck Replacement: Currently our Island Toyota Truck is on its last legs and badly needs replacement. The estimated cost is $54,000.
Student Scholarships: WISH currently supports three students in their university education. One student is in medical school in the Dominican Republic; one student is in dental school in Port-au-Prince; and one student is in nursing school. You can help support and expand this program with donations of any size.
