Fountains of Hope International, Inc.
November 27, 2012

After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, as a Disaster Assistance Response Team Leader, I had the privilege to partner with Fountains of Hope, Bill Farrar and his team, in serving the displaced. One of the most crucial on-going physical needs of the people we encountered was for clean, safe water. FOH offered well-concieved, consistently-executed solutions to the need, with flexibility for each installation site. Bill's team was driven, in it's focus to provide workable, cost-effective solutions even in the most trying of circumstances -- when much of the infrastructure was in ruins and the social structure fractured. His experience in crisis situations allowed Bill to plan which items to hand-carry into the country, which items to ship ahead, if possible, and which items to purchase locally (supporting the local economy.) I was thoroughly impressed with their methods, professional drive and determination, but even more with Bill's personal desire to connect with the people, include them in the process, train them in the operation and maintenance of THEIR system and the personal follow-up he makes with each installation. Fountains of Hope lives up to it's name and mission. They are truly an example of effective humanitarian assistance, as it should be done.
