MINUSTAH Partners with Haitian Agencies to Combat Cholera
The Community Violence Reduction Section (CVR) at the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) is part of a joint pilot project with the Direction Nationale de l’Eau Potable et de l’Assainissement (DINEPA) to install water filtration systems and provide hygiene training in the Cité Soleil slum of Haitian capital Port-au-Prince. The partnership between MINUSTAH and DINEPA forms part of joint efforts between the United Nations and the Government of Haiti to fight cholera.
A UN peacekeeper is seen here hanging a flag at a 'train the trainer' session for community leaders who will be responsible for managing the filtration systems. The systems will provide clean water to around 145 local men, women and children.
