RainCatchers was established in 2002 by Bob Keesee, who saw a need and as a result he committed his life to meet that need.
Bob took his first mission trip to the remote village of Seguin, Haiti in 1994 to build a church with another mission organization. During this trip, Bob witnessed firsthand the backbreaking work and number of hours required by women and children in order to find and transport barely enough water necessary to sustain the life of their family for that day. On average, women and children spent one-third of their lives finding and transporting water. As a result, Bob built a Haitian roof in his backyard and engineered and installed the first rain catcher prototype. This, my friends, was the beginning of RainCatchers, an organization responsible for saving and changing thousands of lives.
When Bob first began taking teams to Haiti, Seguin was a farming community without a clean water source, a school, or reasonable access to medical care. While the initial dream for RainCatchers was to support Haitian women and children by providing them with access to clean water, it was evident this was only one of the many needs RainCatchers could help meet. Over the years, RainCatchers has taken nearly 75 groups of people to Seguin, Haiti. Through these trips, Bob and RainCatchers volunteers:
We are so thankful for the support provided by everyone in our RainCatchers community. Whether you provided monetary or supply donations, participated in a trip, or were a prayer warrior, your support has changed the lives of so many. The lives impacted, experiences lived, memories made, and relationships built will forever be cherished.
While the RainCatchers organization will no longer take trips to Haiti, we challenge each and every one of you to not only continue praying for Haiti and the entire Seguin plateau but to continue to find ways to meet the needs of others in your daily lives. Please keep serving.
