#135 – Church and School Larry, Haiti

In honor of Jim Gehrels.

On Feb. 25, 2021, the Governor General of Canada awarded a Meritorious Service Decoration — an honour bestowed annually to “individuals who have performed a deed or an activity in a highly professional manner, or at a very high standard that brings benefit or honour to Canada” — to Jim Gehrels and Glenn Stronks for co-founding Lifewater Canada.

Starting in the mid-1990s, Jim dedicated his life to bringing safe water to developing countries – principally Liberia, Nigeria, Kenya and Haiti. He and Glenn established Lifewater Canada to realize this dream. In Jim’s time leading Lifewater, he oversaw the provision of life-saving clean water to almost two million people.
