CARE Haiti: Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene

In the aftermath of the devastating January, 12, 2010 earthquake, CARE Haiti scaled up its activities in Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH). When 1.5 million homeless people were forced to live in spontaneous settlements, safe access to water and proper sanitation facilities became a major concern. CARE worked to prevent the outbreak of diseases and to guarantee a minimum standard of dignity for the most vulnerable.
