Beginning in January of 1999, The Catholic Church of Saint Monica in Duluth, Georgia began an outreach program with a sister parish - Sacred Heart Church in Hinche, Haiti. In January of 2000, the first medical mission to Hinche was organized and it has been followed by many more missions over the past 8 years. Eventually these medical mission efforts were augmented by the construction and operation of a year round clinic staffed by Haitian doctors and nurses.
In the course of treating thousands of patients over the past nine years, it became apparent that the main health problems faced by persons visiting the clinic are: 1) insufficient nutrition and, 2) a lack of clean drinking water. To address these health problems, the Catholic Church of Saint Monica has instituted two programs: 1) a year round "soup kitchen" which is open five days each week and serves 100 to 150 people each day and, 2) a Safe Water Program to provide clean drinking water to the people of Hinche.
As of January, 2012 the Klorfasil program has distributed 22,000 units Safe Water units. This number of units is sufficient to provide clean drinking water to 110,000 people.
