For 73% of the Haitian population, the daily search for water is a nightmare. Carrying their buckets, women and girls walk for miles in search for water and when they reach the water source they often cannot afford the high cost.

Vendors can charge up to 100 times as much as the cost of the tap water. This represents one-half of the family's daily food budget.

In 2004 54% of population earned below $1 a day.

BioSand Water Filters are an adaptation of slow-sand filtration, designed for use at the household level. The filter removes water-borne bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and other organisms that cause diseases such as cholera, typhoid fever, and amoebic dysentery. The filter also strains out the particles and organic matter that cause cloudiness, unpleasant taste, colour, and odour.

Seen here Pastor Rodrigues, trained by technicians at Clean Water for Haiti, standing beside the first filter produced in this small production plant. We are believing God now that we have had a cement mixer donated that we can start extending this good work.
