Michael Wahl is a 40-year-old mission's pastor who has dedicated his life for ensuring healthy and sanitary living of the people in the developing nations. He has helped to bring filtered water in some of the poorest part of Haiti where there was no water or bathrooms. When he witnessed the unhygienic disposal of infants' fecal matter, he came up with an idea of reusable diaper and created 'DriButts Reusable Diaper' with his wife Starla E Wahl to help the children in the underdeveloped villages stay healthy. During his visit in last September, Michael Wahl, the founder of DriButts, has distributed 720 reusable diapers to 360 families in the villages in Leogane.
