Five years for one drop of water
Two-and-a-half million dollars (US$2.5 million) to supply water to several marginal neighborhoods in the capital. Approved in 2006. But, five years later, the water isn’t running yet. Children are still in the streets bearing bottles and buckets.
Haiti Grassroots Watch and the students from the Faculty of Human Sciences at the State University of Haiti investigated. Here’s what they found: http://haitigrassrootswatch.squarespace.com/haiti-grassroots-watch-engli/2011/11/3/five-years-for-a-drop-of-water.html
