Hurricane-damaged Systems in Haiti Produce Clean Water Again
In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew caused severe damage to the vulnerable country of Haiti. The hardest hit area was a 50 mile band from Les Cayes to Jeremie in which eighteen Living Waters for the World (LWW) water systems were located. The hurricane destroyed solar equipment, cutting off power to LWW water systems, and in many cases damaged water tanks and PVC components as well. As a result, clean water ceased to flow for these battered communities.
