Nouvelles en bref

Sanitation is on the list of priorities. KPP has purchased the tools deemed necessary for cleaning up the town. Wheelbarrows, rakes, machetes, shovels have been delivered to Port-a-Piment.

KPP has acquired a solar powered water filtration system (gift from the non profit organization Men nan Men), capable of providing 500 gallons of potable water daily. Two young men from the locality had traveled to Port-au-Prince to be trained in the upkeep of the system. The filtration system is now operational.

We will keep you informed on our progress as we continue to assess the need to restore the projects damaged by hurricane Matthew .
