High school students taking water purifiers to Haiti
Eight South Adams Hgh School students, plus eight of their teachers leave for Chambrun, Haiti to deliver water purification systems they have developed as a school project over the past two years. The "dots in blue water" systems operate with a solar-powered car battery and will filter and purify to drinkability river water at a rate of 55 gallons per minute. They plan to set up units in the highlands northeast of Port au Prince, sending some of the units for medical relief in a region recently experiencing a cholera outbreak. The group will leave Berne on Friday June 17th and arrive back on Sun June 26. Please pray for their safety, both in travel and from injury and illness as they bring hope and health to the Haitian communities "lespwa fe viv"--Hope is life.
