Maternal clinic in Cite Soleil gets clean water

International Action installed a 2000-gallon water storage tank at a maternal clinic in the Boston section of Cite Soleil, the most impoverished town in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Our water tank will supply patients at the clinic as well as local residents with clean drinking water. According to the head of the clinic, more than 7,000 people live in the neighborhood. Shelly Chvotzkin – an employee at the clinic – has stated “This will help us to better care for our patients and have a bigger impact on their lives as well as help us save lives!” GPS is as follows: 18°34 N 72°19 W
