Commitment to Action

Fiberglass Tank Factory for Clean Water in Haiti

Commitment by

Andrew M. Weiss

Nearly 2 million Haitians live in Port-au-Prince neighborhoods without water tanks. In 2009, International Action committed to develop a fiberglass factory, as well as to construct and install tanks and chlorinators in order to provide clean and safe water to the entire city. Each tank will hold 1,600 gallons of water, enough to supply 50,000 people with clean water.
The 2009 Commitment was stalled due to the January 2010 earthquake. However, International Action engaged actively in relief and rebuilding efforts, and as of January 2011, the organization was providing clean water to over 421,500 Haitians at 46 locations throughout the country via its 2010 commitment, Clean Water Campaign in Haiti.
