Continuing its commitment with the Haitian people and the government in the development field, the European Union inaugurates this Friday morning a series of development and infrastructure works implemented in the neighborhood of Martissant. This work is part of the program "Establishment of basic services in water supply and sanitation in the planning area concerted of Martissant" funded to the tune of 1,225.000 Euros and implemented by the organization GRET (Development professionals).

This action falls in line with the development strategies favored by the European Union in Haiti and which, in the case of Martissant, define themselves through a comprehensive approach of rehabilitation of the area integrating the Haitian authorities, Haitian and European organizations and the neighborhood communities.

Work that will be inaugurated this Friday on the occasion concern especially :
