Challenge

After the earthquake 1.3 homeless Haitians face problems accessing clean water and knowing how to live in a safe, sanitary way in their challenging situation.

Solution

CHF will distribute household water filtration systems to families affected by the earthquake and provide training to those families in how to use the systems and safe, sanitary behaviors that decrease their chances of experiencing sickness.

Long-Term Impact

The long term effects will be a healthy, productive population both after the earthquake but also in the long term. Communities will be less vulnerable to water borne disease.
