Nonprofit organization to deliver Hydraid systems bound toward Haiti in March
Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) announced it is partnering with Sailors Without Borders (SWB) and vows to deliver Hydraid systems to Haiti in early March.
After attending a couple of meetings in Palm Beach, Fla., Liezel Maree contacted WWIF founder and CEO Guillermo Guzman and invited him to attend an SWB meeting, where the nonprofit was sharing with members the events of its most recent trip to Haiti. At the event Guzman was introduced to SWB founders Cameron and Leighia Murray. They discussed the need for clean drinking water in Haiti, and in particular the community schools SWB had been working with.
SWB plans to return to Haiti in early March, which will be the Murrays’ last trip to the island. They will be sailing back to New Zealand after 12 years in the U.S.
WWIF presented its Hydraid system to the organization and explained its foundation and goals. WWIF also donated 500 stainless steel bottles to be distributed to school children. The Hydraid systems and the bottles will be delivered prior to the end of the month.
