THE SITUATION IS GETTING MORE DESPERATE EACH DAY.. WITH MORE THEN 100,000 PEOPLE INFECTED AND THOUSANDS THAT HAVE DIED THE SITUATION KEEPS GETTING WORSE WITH THE CHOLERA OUTBREAK.. ... THE ROADS HAVE BEEN BLOCKED COMING OUT OF PAP BECAUSE OF THE RIOTS WHICH HAS CAUSED THE SUPPLY OF FOOD TO BE AT AN EXTREME LOW....
I had put out a request for help for water purification systems that will help these
precious people.......I have found a supplier out of Jacksonville, Florida....
web site is....
www.aquavast.com... this will purify water of all diseases including Cholera..
This is a note I got from the company about one of the smaller systems....
I worked on some numbers for you regarding what the water will cost.
Depending your cost to get the system to Haiti and how much water you
have available to filter, at 50% of capacity or 1,314,000 gallons for
the first year your cost would be about $.01 per gallon. That would
fully amortize the initial cost of the unit ($10,000 FOB Jacksonville,
FL.) and installation in Haiti. After that at 50% capacity the cost
per gallon would drop to less than $.002 per gallon.
If the people can come to a central location and get
their water then a larger system could be used. AquaVast has built
systems with 20 gallons and 100 gallons per minute capacities. Those
systems would be need to be placed in a permanent installation. The
other problem would be the amount of water available. The water
source can be any non salt water regardless of how polluted it is.
The system will remove all bacteria and virus. The inventor is working
on systems that could use salt water, but they are not currently
Thank you to those of you that have responded to our request for funds to buy these units...with shipping and installation we are looking at about $15,000 per unit...
To date I haven't found anything else that will produce the amount of water needed to help the 80,000 people that live close to our schools as this unit.....Most of our
schools are located in the remote mountain areas....The cost per gallon and the number
of gallons it will pump out each minute will be a big help.....There is also a
unit that has a submersible pump and a solar system to pump the water to feed this type of system in areas where we do not have electricity.....A unit like this would
be under $10,000.....
We desperately need to hear from you....Information to donate is on the home page of our blog for our friends in the United States and Canada.... BOB & Linda
