New Albany: Hand in Hand with Haiti

World Water Day is coming up and in honor of this very important day, we’ll be highlighting some successful campaigns on water transportation right here in Columbus. First, New Albany High School did an incredible job of raising $25,000 for the Hand in Hand for Haiti project back in November of 2012. The students sold bracelets and T-shirts with “Hand in Hand with Haiti” printed on them while younger children in the district decorated our very own water backpacks to be sent to people in Haiti who struggle to find safe drinking water. Additionally, Dr. Paul Farmer and former President Bill Clinton were able to stop by and speak to the students about Partners in Health and their goal to provide proper healthcare to the thousands of people who have no access. Overall, the event was a major success and a huge thank you goes out to the New Albany community!
