Pierre-Louis reports that the two water systems that they took to
Haiti are serving as many as 7000 people. The photo above is of the system that
he and his
group installed at a former Olympic training facility where it is serving
approximately 900 families.

Engineers Without Borders student chapter has helped send two more drinking
water treatment systems to Port au Prince, Haiti. These systems are being delivered by David
Pierre-Louis and his Strength Through Unity team of volunteers. David’s return to Haiti immediately after the
earthquake was covered by Katie Couric, The Guardian and KING-5 among others. He has raised thousands of dollars
through charity events at his U-District club, Lucid. As David returns to Haiti
on Tuesday, he will be followed by CBS News and a documentary film crew as he
delivers much needed supplies including the treatment systems. Pierre-Louis
contacted SU-EWB faculty advisor Dr. Phillip Thompson after learning of
SU-EWB’s recent efforts for Haiti and their work in Thailand.
SU-EWB will have a concert fundraiser on Saturday, February 6th. For more

Engineer’s Without Borders student chapter’s drinking water treatment system
arrived in Port au Prince, Haiti one week after the earthquake struck. The
system was sent to Crossworld, a Florida-based non-profit organization
who had requested the materials via Dr. Wes Lauer (assistant professor in civil
and environmental engineering) who was working in northern Haiti during the
earthquake. The point-of-use treatment system filters particulates and
dissolved organic material prior to disinfection with ultraviolet light. It is
similar to the systems that SU-EWB installed for a children’s dormitory in Thailand in 2007 and most recently for a Thai medical clinic in January 2010. The
Haiti treatment system was purchased in-part by the nearly $2000 in donations
that have been received by SU-EWB over the past week. Materials are expected to
arrive within the next few days for an additional treatment system for
Crossworld. If you would like to make a contribution to SU-EWB please visit: http://students.seattleu.edu/clubs/ewb/onlinegiving.
