Water water everywhere, but not a drop to drink

10 Apr

Clean water is one of the bigger needs here in Haiti. Wes is trouble-shooting a system our teams installed for a school of 500+ kids that reopened this past Monday in tent shelters. It is interesting and encouraging to hear fairly consistently that Haitians see schools reopening as one of their higher priorities. Just outside this sheltered area stand two tanks. Using a small diesel generator (yellow box), water is pumped from a well to a large tank, through the filter from one tank to the second one. It’s simple, it is easily maintained, and it is sustainable….all criteria for projects we undertake. And such a simple thing makes the education of hundreds of kids viable once again.
