We demand a lot of financial accountability when we donate and Clean Water for Haiti has always responded quickly and completely to our requests for information about past and planned expenditures. When we compare them with other similar charities the per unit cost of filters is the lowest we have seen.

I have been a donor to Clean Water for Haiti for several years. Before I met Chris Rolling I never knew Haiti did not have access to safe drinking water, which is appalling in the 21st century. I also had never heard of a biosand filter. Many charitable organizations ship bottled water or chemical additives, both of which encourage dependance on the organization. Biosand filters are self sustaining and use local materials. They are inexpensive to produce and cost nothing to maintain. They do not require a power supply. They are made by local Haitian people who are employed by Clean Water for Haiti. Besides making filters, the organization also trains people to make their own filters so they can start a business. Clean Water for Haiti is about clean water and community development.

I've known about Clean Water for Haiti basically since it started and I've supported it as I was able throughout the years. They are doing really great and focused work and I'm certain they are the best at what they do in Haiti: making, distributing and maintaining water filters. Water filters save lives every day in Haiti.
