The Haiti Water Project (Aired on June 2 and June 3rd 2018)

Haiti Clean Water Program (Aired on June 2 and 3, 2018) Liberty (NY) Rotarians Gary Silver and Gary Siegel report to RadioRotary on an

important program that they have been developing and monitoring, including their 16 trips to Haiti. Working with the Rotary Club deCap-Haïtien, the Liberty Club has distributed over a thousand two-bucket water filtration systems to families in Cap-Haïtien, a historic city of about 200,000 whose water supply is not potable (suitable for drinking). This effort began as a Rotary District 2710 grant but now is funded largely by a Rotary Foundation Global Grant, which pays about $105 per family, including the cost of technicians who install the system, teach the family
how to use it, and monitor it twice a month thereafter. The Liberty Club is best known for providing and coordinating disaster relief after hurricanes Katrina on the Gulf Coast, Harvey in Houston, and Maria in Puerto Rico, although they also are involved in many local community projects.
