Martissant, Haiti, is a dense, depressed urban area on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince. Resources for clean water there are few, and people are forced to buy unfiltered, unclean water from street vendors. Now people can go to a church in their neighborhood to find clean, safe drinking water from the well provided through the Haiti Water Project in January 2009.


While Martissant has suffered much damage from the recent earthquake, the HWP well is operational and providing clean water to the community.
