Bio-Sand Water Filters Installed in Haiti

This school principal received a water filter 3 years ago, but he donated it to the elementary school where he works.  This February, he received a new water filter. 

A local nurse and her family

receive a new water filter.

 This family lives next door to the pharmacy. 

Another local nurse who lives at the local clinic is promised a water filter which will really benefit the clinic and the people who seek care there.  Technicians from the Vermont Haiti Project will determine the location of the two remaining water filters. They usually choose families who have no access to people nearby with a filter (families and neighbors with filters share with each other).

Happy and grateful families.  

People with no access to a water filter 

travel long distances for clean water.
