H2H providing water at Ravine-à-Couleuvres, Haiti

Clean water is a luxury so easily taken advantage of, especially when it is readily accessible in nearly every facility, and its absence is never feared.

In Haiti, 40 percent of the population lacks access to clean drinking water. A typical trek for water in a remote Haitian village includes a six to eight mile walk, or if they are fortunate enough, it is gathered from a nearby river or stream. But for a large majority of Haitians, these natural provisions do not come free of bacteria or disease. With the absence of clean water also comes the disadvantage of unsanitary living conditions.

There rivers are a communal bathing area, toilet, and washroom not only for humans but animals as well. Countless amounts of bacteria and viruses are transmitted through unclean water. This is the primary source of innumerable waterborne diseases, including massive cholera outbreaks, which have swept across the nation of Haiti since 2010.
