As a member of a supportive Church and Rotary Club, I have been a donor, volunteer and supporter of efforts to address health, hygiene and clean water issues in Haiti through Pure Water for the World. PWW has a strong local presence (largely Haitian staffed), a methodical approach to planning, implementation and followup which is uniquely exceptional. Their efforts have demonstrated sustainable results in schools and communities throughout Haiti. Their efforts are accelerating as their solutions become more widespread and credible. The organization has strong leadership on Staff and it's Board. People should be extremely confident in supporting this organization to address the serous issues facing Haiti.

I have helped to spearhead two projects with Pure Water in Haiti, and I hope to spearhead another in Central America. They're conscientious, caring, and hard working. This is a really neat little NGO.

Our company has been donating annually to Pure Water for the World and we have volunteered on a mission to trip to Honduras. I have never met a more focused and passionate group of people both in the US and in Honduras. We have pledged to continue to donate to their organization and to stay involved as the organization progresses. Water is our passion and ensuring those around us has access to safe water is our first priority. Thank you PWW for the wonderful work you are doing!
