Haiti Travel Warning - Level 4: Do Not Travel

On Monday July 09 2018, the U.S. State Department issued a Level 4: Do Not Travel Haiti Travel Advisory following violent protests that erupted after a hike in gas prices.

Do not travel to Haiti due to civil unrest and crime, was the Haiti travel advisory

There is currently widespread civil unrest and violent demonstrations in Haiti. Protests, tire burning, and road blockages are frequent and unpredictable. On July 9, 2018, the U.S. government authorized the voluntary departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel and their families.

Right now, the U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens. The Department will review this guidance as soon as the current security situation is resolved

Water Treatment in Haiti - Reverse Osmosis

Water Treatment in Haiti - Reverse Osmosis

Safe drinking water is big business in Haiti because most Haitians have switched from drinking 'dlo source' (natural spring water) to drinking water purified by reverse osmosis.

Back in the days, growing up in Haiti, my mom used to send me to a fetch water from a small spring in the outskirts of town where the everyone went to get drinking water. Sometimes, where there's too many people trying to fetch water, fights would break out.

Things have changed. Now in Haiti, there are many water stations in every neighborhood selling water treated by reverse osmosis. For about 30 gourdes per 5-galon you will have safe drinking water to drink.
