“Thank you so much, you are a blessing from God. God is good and he brings us this filter to help my family not be so sick anymore! Thank you for giving money so my children can drink good water and my baby can grow up strong.”
Family Information: Jean Fritz (56) lives with his wife Marie (35), their daughter Jevena (9), son Abraham (4), and brand new 8 month old baby Daniel. The family lives in a small concrete shed in Petite Goav.
Job Information: Jean Fritz works very hard to provide for his family of five, walking 45 minutes each way to get to his job. Fritz works for the Ti Goave Wesleyan Compound, doing any labor job from hauling wood to demolition work. He has worked sun-up to sun-down at the compound since the earthquake, serving as a humble helping hand to construction teams that come to rebuild. Jean Fritz makes a minimal amount and mostly takes home wood for his fire and other scraps to keep his family afloat.
Medical History: The Fritz family deals with sickness on a weekly basis. Currently little Abraham is sick with a fever and their newborn suffers from diarrhea several times per week. Jean Fritz cannot afford to take his children to the hospital if need be, and is desperately grateful for a water filter that will help heal his family.
