(Reuters) Hurricane Matthew's trail of destruction in Haiti stunned those emerging from the aftermath on Friday, with the number of dead soaring to 842, tens of thousands homeless and outbreaks of cholera already claiming more lives.

Information trickled in from remote areas that were cut off by the storm, and it became clear that at least 175 people died in villages clustered among the hills and on the coast of Haiti's fertile western tip.

Rural clinics overflowed with patients whose wounds including broken bones had not been treated since the storm hit on Tuesday. Food was scarce, and at least seven people died of cholera, likely because of flood water mixing with sewage.

Pure Easy is willing to contribute water filters to relief organizations working to deliver aid during this disaster. PF111, PF721, HF521, PF115 are models we recommend and will greatly relief drinking water stress and cholera outbreak in these areas once delivered.
