On Tuesday (1/26), Water=Life traveled further into the southern highlands
to the remote community of Boutillier. Here’s the view from the community overlooking Port-au-Prince.
Elena Delgado, founder of Water=Life, with W=L Haitian advisor Jimmy Pierre talk with community leaders about the Sawyer filter system
and its benefits.
Boutillier community leaders of MORS (Mouvement d’Orientation pour la Rehabilitation Sociale) engage in a Q&A. MORS is committed to bringing health, education and environmental security to the area. They know that clean water for the community will have an impact in these areas of concern.
While Haitian advisors engage leaders in a conversation on the financial value of the filter system and the value of ownership, there’s always time to hold a baby.
After meeting with MORS representatives, it’s time for staff lunch. Our resident team clown, Jimmy Pierre (far right), pretends to eat his unwrapped ham sandwich. Marie Estelle and Wadson know better than to encourage him with their attention!
In the corner of the Sunday School room where training was held was this make-shift drum set of PVC piping, plastic buckets and bass drum with foot pedal (lower right). What imagination and ingenuity.
