PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. /Florida Newswire/ — Attorney Brian O. Sutter of All Injuries Law Firm has been recognized for his contributions to building new wells for clean drinking water in Haiti.
Located in the town of Jacemel on the southern coast of Haiti, the project organized and carried out by Food For The Poor Inc., was part of the charitable organizations’s wider effort to improve the lives of the most vulnerable communities the Caribbean and Latin America. Haiti is especially vulnerable to problems associated with a lack of clean drinking water as one-fifth of children suffer from malnutrition, and 70 of every 1,000 children die before their 5th birthday. Additionally, the literacy rate is just 60.7 percent, in part because of a lack of basic essentials such as clean drinking water.
Food For The Poor Inc., began working in Haiti to improve the lives of the impoverished in 1986, and since has become one Haiti’s largest provider of emergency relief and sustainable development projects.
Attorney Brian O. Sutter had this comment about the project, “While clean water is taken for granted in the United States, the reality is many people around the world are suffering because their community does not have access to this basic essential resource. A lack of clean drinking water that is easily accessible negatively effects a community in a variety of ways.
“For example: rather than being able to attend school or other activities that can improve the quality of life many children are forced to spend hours each day collecting water for their families use. Over time this reduces the ability for a community to advance and improve over time, as well as exposing thousands to the dangers of unclean drinking water. Food For The Poor has been working to help people in Haiti and around the Caribbean for more than 20 years and we feel proud to support their life-saving efforts, and encourage others to do so as well.”
