DEEP SPRINGS INTERNATIONAL: Their goal is to provide clean water to the poorest of the poor in Haiti. They sell the product for $.40 per bottle which will last the average family 1-2 months. Selling chlorine provides income for the sales agents and helps defray a small portion of the total costs of ensuring that families can access safe water. They also educate families about the dangers of unsafe water so they will learn that their family’s health is worth this small investment. Our monthly donation helps offset the costs involved in provided clean water to remote areas of Haiti.
