En Francais

The Haitian Community Development Project (HCDP) is seeking donations for an Incinerator System to combat the growing solid waste problem in the country of Haiti. The HCDP is a newly formed not for profit, tax-exempt organization based in Upstate, New York. It has received small grants in the past for projects related to the Arts, Cultural Awareness, Literacy and Social Needs of the multicultural residents in the county.

Community development, In HCDP's view, involves many aspects which include, but are not limited to Education, Social Awareness, Human Rights, Health, Safety and the Environment.

The environmental issue in Haiti is the core of most of Haiti's problems:

* Land erosion
* Tree cutting without replacement
* Street flooding due to trash blocking the waste pipes causing open sewage all over the city
* Garbage being airborne from the disposal landfill to other areas of the city
* Foot traffic transporting garbage to the neighborhoods

As a result, childrens health is at risk due to over exposure to garbage, open sewage and disease infected water. Even agriculture is affected due to the fact that the water used for irrigration in not safe to grow food for consumption. Read more about this problem.

The Unicef has reported that 110 children in 1000 died by the age of five of preventable childhood diseases.

Recently Ing. Wolfgang Neumann, Founder of the Energy Globe Award stated that “climate change caused by our excess and waste in handling our resources is today’s top buzzword, for indeed it is a mater of existence for us all.” Indeed the situation affects us all regardless of our geographic location. The environmental issue in Haiti is the core of most of that country’s health problems: Land erosion, street flooding due to trash blocking the waste pipes causing open sewage all over the city, garbage being airborne from the disposal landfill to other areas of the city, foot traffic transporting garbage to the neighborhoods, tree cutting without replacement. As a result, children’s health is at risk due to over exposure to garbage, open sewage and disease infected water. The UNICEF has reported that 110 children in 1000 died by the age of five of preventable diseases. Even agriculture is affected due to the fact that the water used for irrigation is not safe to grow food for consumption.
To address this waste issue and its impacts on public health HCDP has proposed the installation of a neighborhood-scale incinerator for domestic wastes. To monitor and evaluate one in Haiti as part of a community waste reduction, reuse, repair and recycling program.
