UN Peacekeepers Bring In Fresh Water For Haitians

Peacekeepers in Haiti are nothing short of a fountain of good news, this time brought to us by the Sri Lankan contingent. The communications/PsyOps folks of MINUSTAH really outdid themselves, delivering a story on water to celebrate World Water Day:
'It may be a mere drop in the ocean, but for 160 children in a Haitian orphanage it meant much more when United Nations peacekeepers delivered 9,000 litres of clean, fresh water: it meant that they were not alone in the battle against poverty and the diseases brought by contaminated supplies.'
