80% of the population of Haiti lives in poverty. Almost 50% of the population has no access to clean water.
Aqua Haiti is a non-profit foundation based in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. It was created to support, promote, and finance installation of water purification systems throughout the country. It was founded by the owners of SIMBI INC, a fashion apparel & accessories company based and run in Haiti. All of SIMBI INC.’s products are conceived and manufactured in Haiti.
The Aqua Haiti foundation will aid the transparent flow of funds raised by SIMBI INC. for the purposes of installing water filtration systems. SIMBI INC., in turn was also created at the same time with the same purpose of eradicating water borne disease in Haiti.
In 2010, the country suffered a devastating cholera outbreak, and most Haitians have either no access to clean drinking water or they cannot afford it.
In Haiti, SIMBI is the water spirit. She is called upon to facilitate solutions to problems. Therefore, it is only appropriate to call upon SIMBI Inc. to help bring clean water to a population in desperate need.
Each Simbi Bracelet sold will bring in enough funds to purify 1 gallon of water per day. A portion of ALL SIMBI sales from SIMBI INC., including the SIMBI Fashion Line will be donated directly to Aqua Haiti.
