In the Port-au-Prince, Haiti there is a large displaced persons camp called Martissant 2A. It has developed into a sprawling shantytown of 35,000 people, so desperately underserved that local residents refer to it as the “lawless zone.” DINEPA, the Haitian government’s water agency, undertook an ambitious project this July to build five water stations throughout the area, joined by the International Organization for Migration and The International Red Cross. International Action accompanied the team to install chlorinators on the new governments water stations. Our systems will insure that the water provided to these 35,000 disadvantaged people will remain safe to drink.
