In Haiti, a chlorinator with chlorine tablets can provide clean water in the poorest community for less than 25 cents per person per year.
Our vision is of a world where every child will attend school, enhance their talents, and live to participate positively in their community. Clean water will be a most important public health measure to make this possible. We have 400,000 Haitians - most of them children - drinking safe water today after one year of our work, and this year we will protect another 300,000 Haitians from waterborne diseases. Children in Haiti have the highest death and disease rate of any children in our hemisphere. Many die in their first year. They die from cholera, typhoid, and chronic diarrhea - all waterborne diseases. With clean water they would live. You can help. Each chlorinator we install costs $265 and we have installed 100 so far. Each chlorinator cleans the water for up to 10,000 people in Port-au-Prince. Your support will guarantee these people clean water. Today they have none, but with your help they can get a chlorinator for their neighborhood.
