The base science behind Liquid I.V. was developed by the World Health Organization and UNICEF specifically to combat dehydration in developing countries and save lives. While we couldn’t be more excited to bring this breakthrough science to you, the consumer, we wanted to find a way to give back to the roots of Oral Rehydration Therapy, so the Liquid I.V. mission was born.
The Liquid I.V. mission is to send 30% of all manufactured product to developing countries to help aid in the fight against dehydration. To that end, Liquid I.V. has now sent thousands of servings of Liquid I.V. to Haiti, and we are quickly expanding our reach to other areas. In April 2016, the Liquid I.V. team began traveling to these countries to support the children desperately in need of hydration and to spread the Liquid I.V. mission globally.
In April 2016, Liquid I.V. cofounder and Chief GiveBack Officer Hayden Fulstone visited Port-au-Prince, Haiti, to deliver Liquid I.V. to those in need. Though the company has been sending crates of its rehydration products to Haiti for months, this was Hayden’s first visit – it was important for him to meet some of the Haitian people himself and to experience first-hand how Liquid I.V. was being distributed and received.
Hands Together is a non-profit organization that provides hope to the poor living in Haiti. The Liquid I.V. team is determined to help save the many men, women, and children who suffer and often die from dehydration in third world countries such as Haiti.
