Water Aid

In Haiti, as in most parts of the under-developed world, clean and reliable sources of drinking water are often the key to survival. A suggestion: perhaps 10 percent of American foreign assistance ought to go straight to small nonprofit on-site groups that exclusively deal in creating potable water sources where they are needed. Simple, effective, with a huge long-term impact. See this Mercy Corps blog entry for more info.
