As part of World Water Day, commemorated this Tuesday, March 22, Jean Métanier the Interim Representative of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in Haiti, revealed that nearly 50% of children suffer of waterborne diseases due to poor water quality underlining the importance of investing in water supply and promote better health conditions for the population recalling that UNICEF-Haiti provides economic assistance between 10 to 15 million US dollars per year in the fight against cholera and support for access to water.
