A house to protect the well and the pump had to be built. Then Ray brought a submersible pump from the US including piping. ( he actually researched the size of the cargo door of the American Airlines flight he was taking back to Haiti and had the pipes folded so that they would fit through….. he won the argument with the AA agent J )and managed to install it in spite of not having the proper welding tool.
Now it was a matter of power to make the pump work and of course the generator we had, wasn’t strong enough. Ever resourceful Maud found a broken one that a technician repaired, then I found an electrician and talked him into dropping his current job to help set up the proper exterior wiring connection. The next day Maud brought a couple of other technicians and VOILA…water is finally here…. It is clear and abundant…I never thought it could look so beautiful!
