Reports indicate that Cholera was not present in Haiti before the earthquake, but experts had warned that conditions were ripe for disease to strike in areas with limited access to clean water.
Reiser Relief funds a water truck that operates six days a week making four deliveries to many poor neighborhoods/tent cities/clinics in Cite Soleil and provides water free of charge, reaching numerous impoverished families where the local people carry the water home in 5 gallon buckets.

The water pumped from s deep aquifer and the Water Truck operation is run by Kevin McClellan who treats each load of water with chlorine.
Chlorine added to drinking water has helped in the safety of drinking water throughout the world. The chlorine damages the cell walls of water born bacteria such as eschera coli, (E coli) and cholera.
