Haiti – Politic : The PM in Thomonde
On Monday, the Haitian Prime Minister Mr. Joseph Jouthe and the Minister of the Environment Mr. Abner Septembre visited the commune of Thomonde (Dept. of the Center). During this tour, these authorities as well as other technical executives of the delegation visited the school of the sisters of Thomonde, the police station of the commune where the PM gave a vehicle to the person in charge and the river of Thomonde which threatens the city. It was also an opportunity for the members of the delegation to receive the complaints of the leaders of the commune, during a community meeting at the presbytery of Thomonde.
This community meeting allowed the members of the population to present the major priority challenges of the commune which require urgent responses from the Government. The market, the public square, the problem of birth registration, employment for young people, the reforestation of the slopes of the sources, the sanitation of the city and the access to water to irrigate the land are among others the problems identified by the population.
At the end of the day, technicians from the Ministry of the Environment visited sites for the possible installation (after study) in the commune of two solar-powered water pumping systems. With a pumping capacity of 1300 gallons of water per minute and watering 150 hectares of land, these solar pumps, which will be installed in the commune of Thomonde, will help improve the living conditions of the general population.
It should be noted that the delegation from the Ministry of the Environment will spend three days in the Center department, in order to continue with the exploration visit.
