A: Do you know?

This girl is in the orphanage at the Hope for Haiti Children's Center. I have been there three times and always notice how the children are mesmerized by water. It is never easy to get clean water there.

Water-borne illnesses account for a large percentage of deaths in Haitian children and adults. 70% of Haitians do not have access to clean, potable water.

1 out of 7 children in Haiti die before the age of 5 years, mostly of preventable or curable diseases like pneumonia and diarrhea.

Taken in Quanaminthe, Haiti

    This is a very emotional photo. Exposure in the harsh sun is handled well.
