One of our water trucks getting filled beside a donkey

Here is a photo of one of our water trucks at the pumping station getting a load of water. Beside the truck is a donkey with saddle bags and plastic jugs of water going to his home 4 miles from this location. It is something we take so for granted in Canada with our abundant water supply. We see daily children carrying plastic containers into the mountains for their daily water supply.
Tomorrow the 20th I will be meeting with Government officials from the Haitian Government in Port au Prince.
Wednesday we will be looking at the Medical Clinic situation here in Jacmel with a Canadian, Dr. Tiffany from Fredricton. There is such a huge need for medical care here and we hope we can help with more then just bring in a few medical supplies. We can man a clinic with a Dr. and nurse for $30,000. U.S. per year. This would help thousands of people and save many lives.
