Shortage of clean drinking water in Haiti

In the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake one of the biggest problems was a shortage of clean, drinkable water.


The world has been sending drinking water to Haiti and via plastic containers in large proportion.

Do we really need drinking water in Haiti to be shipped in plastic cans, causing more problem with trash and others.

Haiti needs better drinking water; however it should not be short term. There are several ways we can improve the distributions of drinking water in Haiti, and one of the goals of Haiti reconstruction needs to be focused on clean, drinking water for all Haitians

An American company, WorldWater & Solar Technologies, was on hand with a number of solar-powered water pumps and purifiers after the Haiti earthquake to provide drinking water to the Haitian population.

The pumps, unlike the bottled water provided by the big aid operations, they do not generate any trash.
