Members of Helping Haiti celebrated with the community for the grand opening of the water tower in July 2009. Since that time, the water tower has functioned at full capacity in the hands of 3 community members. The water tower suffered superficial damage during the earthquake of 2010, but was repaired quickly and continues to provide daily for hundreds of surrounding community members.
Our water tower located on Tecina St. in Boston, Cite Soleil is fed by the much larger city source, CAMEP, which opens 3 to 4 days weekly.
We store a significant amount of water in our holding tank, enabling us to distribute water during the off days.
You’ll notice our water tower has a very unique look. It’s covered in a colourful collection of symbols chosen by the larger financial supporters. I give many thanks and much respect to the following major contributors:
Chris and Ashley Stebbins
The Willis Family
Kingston Fire and Rescue
