International Action Staff with children helped by clean water

With the help of our partners, International Action makes a difference.

International Action has partnered with many organizations to provide the Haitian people with the supplies they need – including water systems, medication, water test packets, and educational materials. Our partners enable us to be more effective and help more Haitians. We believe they are vital to our vision.
