The Haitian government's water agency, DINEPA, has a new request for us: to install chlorinators and water tanks at twenty five schools in the West Department of Haiti. Nearly 18,000 students will have clean, safe water because of this project.

We already have the necessary amount of chlorine -- we just received a donation of 15 tons of chlorine -- to complete this project. However, we need funds for PVC pipes, faucets, solar pumps (there is no electricity in some of the schools) and transportation fuel. Once we have the necessary funds and/or donated materials, we will be able to begin.

In total we will need $6,375 to complete the 25 installations:

$1,375 for PVC pipes and faucets

$1,000 for transportation fuel

$4,000 for solar pumps
