UN Inaugurates Water Project in Haiti


Sandra Honoré, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) for Haiti and Head of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), inaugurated on 8 December a water capture and distribution project in the town of Merger, an hour outside of the Caribbean nation’s capital Port au Prince. The venture will supply water through nearly 5,000 metres of underground pipes to 12 kiosks spread through the surrounding communities in Gressier commune. It will allow 60,000 people to access to clean water on a daily basis.
