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.

This organization has done alot of good in Haiti since its inception in 2001. Over 7000 biosand filters have been installed installed, 125 filter technicians trained and over 100 Biosand filter molds sold to other individuals and organizations. They continue to empower Haitians every day. www.cleanwaterforhaiti.org

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

they have change lives in Haiti and provided sustainable water solution for so many people.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

market and brand it better through the web with social media.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptional and eager to educate.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

thousands more build biosand water filters and train any more local people in Haiti.

Ways to make it better...

I had more knowledge on the technical know how of the filters.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

One thing I'd also say is that...
