Duchity, Haiti Clean Water and Community Electricity Project

 

 

 

The Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise provided support for expansion for electric projects and a water filtration system for the community of Duchity, Haiti following the devastating earthquake in Port au Prince.

 

With a mission to impact health, quality of life, and economic development, specific project goals included providing clean, safe drinking water to the village and installing an electrical production and distribution system to supply electricity to institutional and commercial buildings as well as street lighting. 

 

In November 2007, John Ball exchanged banners with club president Raphael Izmery and made a short presentation on our water and electric projects in Duchity, Haiti.  The club web site is http://rotarypv.tripod.com/

 




Below are some photos of the project to provide electricity to the village of Duchity, Haiti.
