Baltimore, MD (January 26, 2010) — Survivors of Haiti’s devastating January 12 earthquake living in temporary shelters in the Belair neighborhood of Port-au-Prince access clean drinking water provided by International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) in partnership with fellow ACT Alliance member Norwegian Church AID (NCA). Water purification and sanitation equipment for 10,000 Haitians and 500 family tents valued at more than $600,000 was airlifted to Haiti on January 18. The water system provides homeless families in the ravaged neighborhood with piped in water points.
