WaterBrick International in Haiti - Our Continued Efforts

Ship Container filled with WaterBricks - Haiti
Ship Container filled with WaterBricks - Haiti

January 23, 2013 – WaterBrick International is continuing to help make a positive impact in Haiti.  WaterBrick containers are providing a way to sanitarily store and distribute disinfected clean water to Cholera Treatment Centers (CTC) which help stop the spread of Cholera in this country.

As of the beginning of this year, two ship containers filled with WaterBricks were sent to the National Palace and the Haitian Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP) on the requests of the First Lady and their Minister of Health.  A third ship container was sent to the Haiti Communitere.  Our intent was to distribute all of the WaterBricks in that third ship container to Health Capacity Zones around Haiti as agreed to by the MSPP.  In addition to our WaterBrick containers, 400 gallons of chlorine were sent directly to the Ministry of Health and distributed by Dr. Claude Surena, former Ministry of Health, to numerous Cholera Treatment Centers (CTC) in and around Port au Prince.

We will continue working in Haiti to help stop the spread of Cholera.  Feel free to call us at 877-420-WATER if you have any questions or ideas. Your continued support is greatly needed.

This project is being run by a socially-oriented for-profit company.

From time to time, GlobalGiving posts projects run by socially-oriented for-profit companies, whose work includes charitable activities in the public interest. ALL projects on GlobalGiving have a bonafide charitable purpose, and are required to submit extensive documentation and complete a thorough application process. GlobalGiving reviews all applications, and vets the projects to ensure they are legitimate, well-run, and satisfy IRS guidelines for international grantmaking as well as the new voluntary guidelines for anti-terrorism set forth in the Patriot Act. Provided projects meet all these criteria, the IRS allows public foundations such as GlobalGiving to make grants in support of this work.

Projects in this category are required to undergo an expenditure review - meaning they must detail the charitable activities for which they are requesting funding, and provide an actual review of how the funds were spent.
