More Info

Myrie is a 70-year-old pepper farmer from St. Ann Jamaica. Myrie grew up on a small farm and began helping his parents at a tender age.

Currently, Myrie has no water source. In order to capture water Myrie puts one small sheet of zinc into a small blue barrel (pictured here). It doesn’t amount to much irrigation; but it helps.

Having access to water will help ease the concern for consistent water supply and access to water for his pepper crops. Knowing he is able to store water from each rainfall will allow Myrie to increase his yield and generate consistent income. Your donation supports the following for Myrie:
