Personal statement: Kristyna Smith, Safe Harbor Haiti Water Project Coordinator, March 2011
It is amazing how our Haiti Water Project at Safe Harbor has progressed in just a few short months! When I was first introduced to the innovative new filters I never expected it to be more than just a research project, but before I knew it we had sent for our first order of filters. We were uncertain of the project;s future at this point as we hadn’t any idea whether or not we would receive donations. Uncertainty didn’t last long; generous donations began pouring in to help send these filters to Haiti. It has been so great to be a part of this. I have had the opportunity to communicate and meet with so many generous people who actively participate in the relief efforts and rebuilding of the Haitian community. By spreading knowledge of this sustainable solution I know our efforts will make a difference.
