Haiti: Peacekeepers Restores Provincial Library

In Haiti, UN peacekeepers have restored a provincial library at a cost of $3,500 US.

'QIPs [Quick Impact Projects] are widely viewed as being among the most effective tools used by UN missions around the world to help local communities at ground level and at low cost, from repairing leaking roofs in schools in Georgia to opening a vocational centre in Liberia to refurbishing sanitation facilities in Burundi.'
