LGF Haiti partners with Sean Penn’s organization J/P HRO to bring Clean Water to College in Delmas 32

LGF Haiti recently completed another clean water project in conjunction with Sean Penn’s organization, J/P HRO, at the College Toussaint Louverture in Delmas 32, Port au Prince. Managed by our partners J/P HRO, this pilot project is part of The Helping People Home Initiative which aims to relocate families back to their neighborhoods from the IDP camp at Petionville Golf Course. As an incentive, the school will be giving the purified water to their 300 pupils and the excess will be sold to the local community at a reduced rate to help fund the day to day operations of the school. The next project is fitting a free clinic in the same neighborhood, run by J/P HRO, with a desperately needed ultra filtration system. This installation should be completed in the coming days and more photos will be posted on the blog as well so stay tuned… Thanks to J/P HRO for being such great partners.
