The Prince of Hope visits Port Au Prince, Haiti


PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- Fraser Kershaw visited the Haiti capital last week to provide clean water to a compound that has been continually struggling with access to clean water. Kershaw is the host of a new film called “Behind the Water” and he spoke with community leaders in the capital about rising up. Together they are launching a new campaign that challenges community leaders to provide clean water.

Kershaw provides clean water in an effort to prevent cholera and other waterborne diseases, which remain a leading cause of death among infants in Haiti. About 40 percent of Haitians lack access to safe drinking water and only 24 percent of Haitian families have access to improved sanitation.

Kershaw said, “If everybody stops going to the bathroom right now then we can save lives, but that’s never going to happen.”

Globally, 768 million people do not have safe, clean water to drink, and more than 2.5 billion people live without a proper toilet. The lack of these basic necessities is not merely inconvenient in Haiti -- it can be lethal. Every day, children die from diarrheal diseases and nearly 90 percent of these deaths are linked to water, sanitation and hygiene. Kershaw comes to help spark a change.

Kershaw said, “I know the Haitian people because I am the Haitian people. We are both human, one and the same. We thirst together and we drink together. We want water that heals instead of steals.”

Kershaw is the host of a new film called "Behind the Water” directed by National Geographic’s Doug Clevenger and the film is scored by Grammy award winning One Republic’s Brent Kutzle.
