Well Drilling in Haiti

JAMES is getting rigged

Mission Waco Mission World (MWMW), our parent organization, has longstanding well drilling operations in Ferrier, Haiti. On previous trips to Haiti, JAMES was able to connect and interact with their rig team and test water wells in the area. The local team does incredible work bringing water some of the poorest parts of the western hemisphere. Click the link below to learn more and donate!
