Dear Friend, We want to take a moment to acknowledge the horrible tragedy that occurred in Haiti last week, the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse.

June 2012 Newsletter: Sustainable Sanitation Works in Haiti

Dear friends and supporters, As many of you know, Sasha, Bobo and Anthony have finally returned to Port-au-Prince safe and sound. The whole team met Bobo at the airport on Friday afternoon with dozens of Haitian flags and cheers.
