Haiti has been hampered by an unfortunate mix of unstable governments and natural disasters, from mudslides to earthquakes. More than a third of the country lacked access to safe water before the quake struck Port-au-Prince in 2010. When it did, thousands fled to the countryside and water sources quickly became overstressed and contaminated.

Now, over 80% of rural Haitians lack direct access to sanitation facilities, and only 48% have access to an improved water source. Haiti will be rebuilding for years, and sustainable clean water access is crucial for their recovery.
