On World Water Day, Charity: Water Calls for Support to Haiti
Today nonprofit charity: water kicked off World Water Day with a stirring video calling for support to Haiti, where they state that even before the recent earthquake, 1/3 of the population had no access to clean water. Today, they say "the water situation is devastating."
In the video below, charity: water founder Scott Harrison relates how inspired his team was by the resolve of the Haitian people, recounting how a local villager told him, "our community has no money to give, especially now, but we are ready to give you our courage." Watch video from the team's recent mission to Haiti below.
Charity: water funds focuses on funding projects by existing nonprofits such as Partners in Health and Concern, widely respected in the philanthropy space. Learn more about their work in Haiti here.
