Throughout the world there are areas where infant and child health is poor.

Throughout the world there are areas where infant and child health is poor. In Haiti the infant mortality rate was 84 per 1,000 live births in 2005. A quarter of all registered deaths occurred among infants who were younger than one year old; half of all deaths occurred among children under five.

What can we do to help?

United Caribbean Trust (UCT) as part of our Imagine me... school child awareness program seeks to partner with NGO's who work toward providing sustainable solutions to the water crisis around the world.

All across Barbados, every month, on 'Child Awareness Day' the children of the Secondary Schools will be encouraged to bring a bottle of cold water to school instead of purchasing a bottle of soda. This will be a sign of solidarity with the children around the world that often times do not even have water to drink!

The US $1 saved will be collected and donated to the UCT's Child Sponsorship Program.. UCT is committed to investing US $30 to producing a Biosand filter for every family within our Child Sponsorship Program within Haiti

Thanks to Combermere Secondary School in Barbados that is the first school to get involved in this project.

St Marc Prison distibution

The Haiti cholera epidemic has rocked the Western Hemisphere's poorest nation with another emergency nine-and-a-half months after Hait suffered a catastrophic earthquake that killed more than a three hundren thousand people and left millions homeless.

."A nationwide outbreak with tens of thousands of cases is a real possibility," the United Nations humanitarian agency OCHA said in a statement.

UCT is urgently appealing for financial help to get 400 more Sawyer PointOne filters imported into the St. Marc area.

We have an excellent network of pastors and teachers within the area to assist with distribution, seen here at the Maranatha Ministries filter distribution.

Following the earthquake United Caribbean Trust distributed over 250 Sawyer PointOne filters.

Each filter is capable of generating up to 500 gallons of potable water a day, cleaner than US bottled water anywhere in the world!
