A Murray State University student is leading a 5K Saturday as part of an effort to raise money to build water wells in Haiti.
The ‘Walk for Water’ is a partnership with Healing Hands International, a Christian, Nashville-based relief effort. MSU senior Chantry Carroll says his family has lived and served as missionaries in Haiti for more than two and a half years. He says Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere.
“Haiti is actually the poorest country in the western hemisphere, it’s the only third world country in Central and South America. A lot of the stuff you see there is based and caused by lack of education, they don’t really understand how germs spread,” said Carroll.
The walk will begin in front of Carr Health at 10 A.M.
