It’s that time of year where we all start thinking about the upcoming holiday season and gift giving. Once again Clean Water for Haiti is offering the Gift Of Life as an option for those on your giving list.
How Does It Work?
It’s easy! Just make a minimum donation of $10 (or more – we love more!) and include the name and address of someone on your gift list. We’ll send them a card to let them know you’ve made a donation in their name this holiday season.
Why It Matters
Every year millions of Haitian families struggle with water-borne illness, and even death, because the water they have access to is contaminated. We can help break that cycle by providing access to clean water in their homes through the use of Bio-sand water filters. Each filter costs us about $75 to build, deliver, install and support. Each family that receives a filter invests the equivalent of about $5 US into their filter, giving it value and giving them dignity in knowing they’ve made a choice to better the health and future of their family.
Why It’s Worth It
A recent CDC (Center for Disease Control) found that many options for household water treatment aren’t working well in Haiti – with the exception of Clean Water for Haiti’s Bio-sand filter program. In fact, our program is working so well that the CDC reported that it would be very valuable to find ways for Clean Water for Haiti to get more funding to do what we do because they want to see us doing more of it. We work in a long-term development capacity. Every decision we make is with long term change in mind. We don’t just want to give people clean water right now, we want to give them a tool and the support the need for the long term so real change can happen. When you donate to Clean Water for Haiti you’re helping to support those goals and objectives, and you can do it confidently knowing that your donor dollars are going to go a long way and make a big impact.
