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 email@example.com. 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.
