International Action/Haitiwater.orgThe month of May proved to be very successful for the Campaign for Clean Water in Haiti. This past month, International Action installed 21 chlorinators in Port-au-Prince, Léogane, Carrefour and other towns. These installations are benefiting approximately 100,000 people. The record setting pace was fueled by International Action’s strategic plan to protect the population from waterborne illnesses, such as cholera, during the current rainy season. Community Interventions & ongoing cholera responseIn collaboration with the DINEPA and partner organizations such as Action Contre la Faim and Le Comité International de la Croix Rouge, International Action experienced great success installing new chlorinators and restoring old ones that were damaged in the quake last year. In many cases, ACF or the CIRC restored the water tanks, DINEPA provided the water, and International Action installed the chlorinators to protect the residents.In collaboration with Le Comité International de la Croix Rouge, the following chlorinators were also installed.Drouillard 1 - N : 18034.920’ Wo : 72019.570’Drouillard 2 - N : 18034.920’ Wo : 72019.570’Drouillard 3 - N : 18035.028’ Wo : 72019.566’Drouillard 4 - N : 18035.103’ Wo : 72019.522’CGI Successful Partnership - IA and AIRIn addition to community interventions, International Action installed 12 chlorinators and 2,000-gallon tanks in schools through its partnership with the American Institute for Research.

The water truck only delivers water to sites that have no DINEPA water infrastructure.Conclusion: International Action’s Campaign for Clean Water is gaining tremendous momentum and making new friends along the way. We’ve added 100,000 new beneficiaries this past month. Our simple, affordable, and effective water chlorination system has proven that it can provide clean water on a community level anywhere in Haiti. To fulfill our commitment of reaching 2.5 million people, we are seeking funding and sustainable partnerships through the CGI. We are very thankful for the CGI for providing us with the platform to showcase our work, create partnerships, and contribute to Haiti’s reconstruction.
