Our Work In Haiti
Pure Water for the World opened its doors in Haiti in 2008 serving schools, orphanages, health clinics and hospitals with clean water filters, as well as providing education to schools and communities about safe hygiene and sanitation practices.
After the devastating earthquake on January 12, 2010, we shifted our focus to emergency aid, partnering with Save the Children to deliver clean water to victims of the earthquake, particularly within the highly underserved community of Cité Soleil.
FAMILY HOMES. Today, we continue our commitment to serving the people of Haiti, focused on community-wide access to safe water and essential hygiene education. We partner with entire communities and work directly with families, in their homes, to increase community-wide impact and effectiveness.
SCHOOLS. We implement comprehensive water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programs in schools. These programs include clean water filters, gender-specific latrines, handwashing stations, hygiene education (including menstrual hygiene education), teacher training, monitoring and follow-up.
WASH TRAINING AND CONSULTING. We are the resident leader of WASH educational services, in Haiti, providing a wide-range of training workshops and consulting services to individuals, government entities, businesses and other non-governmental organizations throughout the country. Read More >
In October 2010, cholera was introduced into the country, quickly spreading, causing widespread illnesses and deaths. We work closely with community members to eliminate this deadly disease by incorporating safe hygiene practices, proper water handling techniques, and water source protection practices with the clean water filters.
