Making water clean, fresh and available

 

Access to safe, clean, drinking water, and sanitation is a human right. But for more than 50% of Haitians, access to clean water is impossible, while only 25% of Haitian people have access to a toilet.

 

Providing clean water is the cornerstone of the basis of good health, one of the basic human needs. Less than 50% of Haitian people have access to clean water, while only around 25% have access to a toilet.  Without access to clean water and sanitation, preventable diseases like cholera, diarrhea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid, and polio can and do kill.

After the 2010 earthquake, cholera has spread across Haiti.  It is estimated that 500,000 people were infected, resulting in around 9,000 deaths. It is considered the most significant modern-day outbreak of the disease.

 

 

At The Gaia Society, it is one of our priorities to give the Haitian people access to clean water
