Tatu and her family live in the Camp Marie region of Haiti. Like most Haitians, their struggle for access to safe drinking water takes a detrimental toll. A new bio-sand filter from Clean Water for Haiti has eased the daily burden of walking long distances for clean water, and more importantly provides the family with water free of dangerous microbes and parasites. Water borne illnesses affect millions of Haitians who suffer from debilitating and oftentimes fatal ailments due to consuming contaminated water.

These life-changing filters are manufactured, installed, and maintained in Haiti and by Haitians for the health benefit of all.
