Three years after Haiti had been struck by a 2010 catastrophic magnitude 7.0 earthquake, this image was captured in the community of Trianon, during a visit by representatives of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and CDC Foundation, who were in the process of journeying to the community’s remotely-located spring, which provides fresh water to the entire town. The CDC visitors can be seen in the background, while in the foreground, three boys attracted by the camera, had stopped to pose for this quick picture.
Additional Information:
"Access to safe water and sanitation are fundamental to public health. Haiti’s National Directorate for Drinking Water and Sanitation (DINEPA) was created to address challenges to and lack of regulations for the rural water sector in Haiti. Since its inception, DINEPA has established regional water and sanitation offices in each of Haiti’s four main regions, and Rural Departmental Units in each of the country’s 10 departments. To further support and strengthen this work, CDC developed and helped implement training for over 250 rural potable water and sanitation technicians who work in all rural areas of Haiti to inventory, rehabilitate, and disinfect rural water supplies."
