A bold plan to protect God's thirsty children from cholera in Haiti
What motivated this campaign?
Our efforts were first motivated by numerous requests for help from communities near Les Verettes, Haiti. We are convinced that cholera can only be eradicated by a general access to safe drinking water…and that we have a way to make that possible.
What is cholera?
Cholera is an acute diarrheal disease that can kill within hours. It’s transmitted through dirty water. Since the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, thousands have fallen ill or died from this waterborne disease.
In our standard program, we entrust Sawyer PointONE water filters into the hands of mothers (“Water Women”) who attend our extensive training and make a sacred commitment to share filtered drinking water with 3 neighboring families.
