Rotterdam Sunrise Rotarian Miriam Cajuste visits RadioRotary to build support for improving the availability of clean water in Matogou, Haiti, a Global Grant project of the Rotary Foundation. The effort is led by New York State's Schenectady Rotary paired with the Rotary Club of Port-au-Prince Champ-de-Mars om Haiti. For several years the Schenectady club has been supplying gravity-driven water filtration systems to Matogou. These essentially consist of two large buckets on a special stand with a carbon filter between them—effective, but slow. For an ordinary fasmioly, the bucket has to be filled three times each day. Although the carbon filters are made in the United States, everything else about the filtration system is made in Haiti. With the Global Grant, Schenectady wants to build a new well with a pump and filters, which would supply clean water outlets to three locations in the village. Because then project is based on a Rotary Foundation Global Grant, every dollar contributed to the project will be matched by three from the Foundation. The construction for the new well is scheduled to begin in April 2020.
