Every year thousands of people in Haiti are stricken with life-threatening diseases caused by drinking water contaminated with bacteria and parasites. The lack of proper sanitation in this underprivileged country has made it impossible for the people of Haiti to safely drink, cook, and bathe with one of our most basic needs: Clean Water.
They use poorly sanitized water and lack proper equipment like faucets for running water. They also resort to collecting their own water from streams and rivers riddled with microscopic parasites unseen to the naked eye. Thirsty and trying to survive, they unknowingly ingest this toxic water. Because of this hardship, the people of Haiti are not only suffering , but they dying from their toxic water sources. Please help them by giving them clean water!
