For people who wonder what I was doing and why, here is the story in pictures:
|Many children in Haiti are living in the care of orphanages. They, like everyone else in the world, deserve to have a chance at a bright future.|
|Once the filtration system is installed, the orphanages can use their excess clean water as a way to generate revenue to maintain the water system, take care of the orphans and share clean water with the rest of the community.|
In all, it was a very interesting solution to consider and see in action. The orphanages are very excited about getting clean water for their kids and the kids are learning about why untreated water makes them feel sick. We taught some basic hygiene classes to the kids and had a celebration with them when the filtration system was finally working properly. I look forward to learning about more solutions to the water crisis in the future. Thanks for checking in!
