International Action

"We are demonstrating in Haiti that an inexpensive chlorinator with new safe chlorine tablets can provide clean water in even the poorest community for less than 25 cents per person per year. Through village level training and installations we are developing teams to stop these diseases in province after province.

"Our vision is of a world where every child will attend school, enhance their talents, and live to participate positively in their community. Clean water will be a most important public health measure to make this possible." [1]
