Water Missions International is continually amazed by the talented, passionate people and organizations who work alongside us in the fight against the global water crisis. We’re especially honored to have the support of award-winning portrait artist Robert Maniscalco.

The artist, based in West Ashley, S.C., recently launch a Kickstarter campaign for his work with Water Missions International. Manisalco plans to take a trip to Haiti where he will accompany Water Missions International staff in their work to bring safe water to those in need. His Kickstarter campaign will fund his travel and other expenses.

Christelle

Robert Maniscalco’s “Christelle” is part of Water Missions International’s permanent collection.

While in Haiti, he will document and interview Haitians he meets in communities where Water Missions International works. His goal is to turn his time in Haiti into reference material for 10 to 15 paintings that would be part of a traveling exhibit: “The Quench Project”. Maniscalco hopes that this special exhibit will be a call to action for the increasing need and awareness for Water Missions International.

“My purpose while there is to come away with as full a sense of the experience of the Haitian people and the plight of all people struggling with access to this basic human necessity, this basic human right, and express/respond to that authentically on canvas and in the written word,” Manisalco explains on his Kickstarter page.

Once the work is finished, the exhibit will launch at Water Missions International’s headquarters in Charleston, S.C. For more on Maniscalco’s project, visit his Kickstarter page at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1258824272/the-quench-project-in-haiti-paintings-of-hope-and
