Haiti earthquake aftermath
Safe Water Brings Hope For Deaf IDP Camp
IDP camps lay scattered all around Port-au-Prince. Many of them are crowded, and full of people who lost their homes in the earthquake. Water Missions International has installed more than 100 water treatment systems since the earthquake, with the capacity to provide safe water for over 200,000 people.
One of the camps where Water Missions International is working is called "The Friends Of The Deaf Camp". Nearly 350 people live in this camp and all are either deaf, or are children who have deaf parents. Water Missions delivers 6,000 liters of water to this camp three times a week, and then purifies it with their water treatment system.
This is a brief look at the camp - the people, their living situation, as well as the water solution.
