2012 – Haiti Spetic Project Update

The Rotary Club is Lawrenceville is participating in a matching grant project to fund the development of a new septic system for a hospital in Haiti. This project is one of the District 6910 International Service projects coordinated through the District Office (Brian Heimbigner, D6910 International Chair). With Board approval, the Rotary Club of Lawrenceville donated $2,000 toward the project and these funds will be leveraged, along with funds from other District 6910 clubs, through the Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Club of Pignon is the local host club.
As outlined in the grant application, there is an urgent need to completely replace an aging and outdated septic system for Hospital Bienfaisance De Pignon. An engineering study has determined the feasibility and cost of replacing the existing system with a new, gravity-fed, lagoon septic system, including updated latrines for the hospital. Once the local funding is secured and the grant project approved, the project is expected to take less than one year to complete.
