    water is life in cholera-stricken Haiti


    A Samaritan's Purse water filtration system is installed in the town of Barbancourt. The SP assessment team found that there is no other source of water in this village besides the infected river. The system has the capacity to pump 10 gallons of water per minute. Villagers came in droves to collect clean water, many of them taking long drinks of water right at the site. The sound of running clean water was a welcome one this afternoon for many, who have been waiting for relief.  These photos were taken right when it started for the first time. There was energy and excitement,a feeling of happiness in this place.
