2015: New Housing Project in Haiti
In Haiti, 54 percent of the people live in abject poverty. Two-thirds of children suffer from malnutrition and 1 out of 14 children die before reaching their fifth birthday. Life expectancy is 51 years for men and 54 years for women. Nearly a quarter of the country’s rural families have no land to farm on, and Haiti must import nearly a quarter of its overall food supply. The lack of usable water has become a major problem. Clean water for drinking, cooking and bathing is in short supply, the instance of waterborne diseases is high. The climate there is extreme and decent shelter in which to live is considered a luxury.
When Florida Paints was asked by a large charitable organization to donate materials for a new housing project we jumped at the opportunity. In 2015, we shipped hundreds of gallons of interior and exterior paint, custom tinted to the flavor of the island, and we continue to support this worthy endeavor on future projects.
The organizer of the project told us “in the past we had difficulty finding paint manufacturers willing to donate so the houses were left unpainted. This time was different, people were extra excited about the bright colors…your paint brought many smiles.”
Please keep the people, and the country, of Haiti in your prayers.
