Bleck

girl carries waterThe community of Bleck, a town in the mountains of southeastern Haiti, was changed for good when an underground spring system forced fresh water into above-ground fountains several years ago. Kids could go to school instead of walking for water. The rate of disease went down. And more people moved to the area to be near safe drinking water for their families. In the fall of 2008, the Haiti Water Project repaired some of the pipe and expanded the system to reach additional nearby towns. There are now seven fountains providing clean water for children and families living in those communities.
