LGF water technology-changing lives in Haiti

What’s the difference between clean water and unclean water? Well, add to that question the fact that someone will be drinking it and you get an unexpected answer: it’s quality of life.

In order to begin to understand what this really means, lets consider two measures used to determine a population’s health liabilities, Years of Life Lost (YLL) and Years Lived with Disability (YLD). These measures are based against something that many in the developed world take for granted: a long, healthy life expectancy.

In many parts of the world however, the difference between how long and healthy a person could live and how long and healthy they do live is staggering, and much of this is due to the absence of a simple resource. Clean water.
