Most of our work is concentrated in Kaberamaido, a peninsular community in the Northeast. In partnership with community-based organization Prince of Peace for Orphan and Widows (POPOW), we have fixed community and school wells, protected natural springs, constructed latrines for schools and distributed water purification filters via a microfinance model.
Approximately 40 percent of Haitians lack access to clean water. Surge partners with FilterPure and Mabouya Dlo Pwop to provide locally produced ceramic water purification filters to families in Jacmel and Croix des Bouquet. This simple technology has reduced the devastating spread of cholera.
