On two mornings, our group went into Cite Soleil to deliver fresh water. Cite Soleil is considered one of the more dangerous places in the world. People don’t go there. At one point, we told someone we went there and they asked if we were joking. If you don’t live in Cite Soleil, you just don’t go there. It has a terrible gang problem and there are shootings, muggings, fights, and everything else you could imagine. So like I said, we went in twice.
Healing Haiti is the only group that delivers free water into Cite Soleil. We filled up a huge milk truck at the water fill station and headed in. We would regularly be at the fill station for over an hour waiting for our truck’s turn at the water.
The first district we visited (Cite Soleil is divided into around 34 different districts) was 17. 17 is going to be the site of a church that Healing Haiti is currently building. Before we walked to see the build site, we delivered the water.
