One Person Can Make an Impact! Eduardo’s Birthday Wish is Clean Water for Haiti

On November 21st Eduardo Couto, a student studying International Relations in London, is turning 27 years old. He is not asking for a party. He does not want or need presents. Instead, he wants his friends and family to help our group, International Action, provide clean water to the hundreds of thousands of Haitians in need.

International Action is a Washington D.C. and Haiti based non-profit organization, whose purpose since 2006 has been to improve the health of Haitians by preventing the spread of waterborne diseases in Haiti, such as cholera, typhoid and chronic diarrhea. We accomplish this by installing chlorinators on neighborhood water kiosks, which provide communities and schools with permanent access to clean, safe water.

Roughly 900,000 Haitians now have clean, safe drinking water because of our efforts.

Eduardo reached out to us because he knows that despite all of our success, there are still four million people in Haiti that do not have access to clean, safe water.

Our chlorinators effectively treat water, while remaining inexpensive and easy to use. They have the potential to provide millions of Haitians with clean water, permanently.

What Eduardo is doing is incredible. Please, do something amazing today, join Eduardo and International Action, and give the precious gift of clean water.
