Gadyen Dlo Station Set up

January 27th: First Shipment of Aquatabs Arrives! “Our first distribution was to a school building in Leogane. Several hundred people are living there with no access to clean water. We distributed enough tabs to purify over 100,000 liters of water at the school!” John Smith, DSI Volunteer Additional distributions include: -Two field hospitals received enough Aquatabs to purify 1 million liters. Each patient receives a strip of tabs. -Mobile doctor team distributing tabs as they go into the countryside. An additional ½ million liters will be treated -A distribution was held in accord with the US Marines outside one of their camps “People are excited to get the tabs because many of them understand the dangers of their water situation. Also, they know how to use them already.” A special thank you to the people of Lanxess for their donation of Aquatabs. Additional News: Water Treatment Training: 150 health agents and 36 Monitrices (community health workers) have been trained and provided with Aquatabs to distribute Buckets: Negotiations with the local bucket factory are complete. Jolivert: Jolivert, our first production site in northern Haiti, is producing 136 liters per day of Gadyen Dlo (liquid chlorine).
