Suddenly last summer

Some illustrations of the work in Haiti, summer 2014.
The water project - finished! Solar powered pumps get the water up from 500 feet down and closer to settlements.  Here, Samwel shows California how to do it.  Note he has shampooed his har - and now he gets water one ti godet ala fwa --- one cup at a time! - to rinse... 

 Dads and daughters learn to read.
