Love A Child helping with Cholera Outbreak

WaterBrick has partnered with Love A Child, a non-profit Christian Humanitarian Organization, that has been helping in Haiti since 1991.  While there relationships will certainly make it easier to pass through the red tape of importing goods, the bigger benefit is that they are a trusted Haiti distribution source to get our donated goods to those in need.  To learn more about the wonderful work that this organization does everyday, go to http://www.loveachild.com/.

In response to the recent cholera outbreak, WaterBrick has donated 1,000 gallons of bleach to Love A Child to distribute to be used as a disinfectant to stop this outbreak.  We are actively contacting corporate donors to increase this donation of bleach through Love A Child and your help would be appreciated through contacts you may have so let us know at info@waterbrick.org.  As of this November 11th report, More than 80 people have died in the last 24 hours across the country, according to the health ministry, taking the death toll to 724.  Hurricane Tomas has magnified the problem in recent days causing this outbreak to reach Port-Au-Prince putting at risk the millions living in tent cities.  For more information on this story, go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-11736833.  Dirty drinking containers reused out of the garbage dumps is one cause for the spread of cholera and is why it is so important for us to continue providing clean drinking containers.  Dr. Claude Surena, the head of the Haiti Medical Association, told us personally when we were in Haiti that they would need at minimum 250,000 containers.

For pictures of our work in Haiti from your donations, go to http://waterbrickpictures.shutterfly.com/pictures/119.  We will add more pictures at this link to show our recent donations currently being distributed in our next update.  We appreciate your continued support from either yourself, your friends or your family by going to http://www.globalgiving.org/4578.  If you have any questions, you can contact as directly at info@waterbrick.org.

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.
