Clean water for Haiti provides bio-sand filters for Haitians. Their filters are built to last and very dependable. I personally live in Haiti near their organization and see first hand the binifets of their filters. We use them at our school and orphanage. Over 150 students depend on their filter everyday to have clean water at the school.
