                                 Would you drink this water?
According to UNICEF, 46% of Haiti's population lacks access to an improved water source, and most of Haiti's water is contaminated with human waste and disease.  Out of 147 countries, according to Water Resources, Haiti is dead last on the Water Poverty Index table (WPI).  Water-borne contaminants, chronic diarrhea, typhoid and hepatitis are the leading causes of death in this country plagued with the highest child mortality rate in the Western hemisphere.  OIH plans to change these dismal statistics in Bombardopolis. 
 
The nearest well from the OIH center was approximately 3 miles away.
