An ACF(Action contre la faime) truck supported by UNICEF Haiti delivers water to one fo the 28 sites they deliver in Gonaives. The water is taken from a well close to the river mapou outside the city of Gonaives. Since September 2008 ACF runns 4 pumping and cleaning station arround Gonaives and cleans about 450 cubicmeters of water a day. Moreover afer the hurrican and the flood, the governmental intitution CNE destroyed a lot of tubes of the sanitation system while digging out the mud in the streets. The citys water and sanitation system nearly collapsed entirely. A local ACF worker mentions that it would take up to three yaers to repair all the system but nobody knows how that would be financed.
