Currently, some children are walking for over an hour everyday to get water to their families.
Water purification: individual water treatment stations that use filtration are available in Port Au Prince, which runs a school for implementing the system. We are currently investigating the cost of sending qualified candidates to attend the school and learn how to build the devices locally. The schools are 1-2 weeks long and after attending, these individuals should be able to install the filtration systems locally. The cost for the school and 50 filter systems is approximately $5,000 and Friends of Haiti is committed to raising the full amount.
