Why:
See the immediate benefits of your donation.
CoH will provide clean drinking water to communities in dire need.
Clean water is critical to health and Haiti has poor water systems. In fact, the orphanages and schools that Child of Haiti supports currently rely on the local river water for all their needs including bathing, laundry, cooking, and drinking. Many health problems, such as cholera and skin issues, are derived from drinking the rivers' unpurified water. The LifeStraw water filters that Child of Haiti delivers provide clean drinking water for students and families.

Certain schools in rural areas have not been able to start because of lack of funding and the devastation to their school facility (which are basically a structure with a poorly made roof and no walls or foundation).
Eighty percent of Haitians live under the poverty line and 54% live in abject poverty. Only 53% of Haitians cannot read or write, so a student's education is important to their livelihood and quality of life. CoH will help several schools to keep running.
