IA Continues to Fight the Epidemic with Chlorine Distribution

We have created a consortium of churches, missions and NGOs throughout Haiti to combat the most recent surge of cholera.  A health center outside of Labrousse has received 80 cases of cholera in the past month alone. 

 There are organizations seeking to help in every corner of Haiti.  Our group has enough granular chlorine to disinfect water for every Haitian for six-nine months.   We are donating our chlorine to these groups to help as many people as possible.  We will also use this network to coordinate a response to future emergencies and initiatives.

 The process is simple.  We reach out to groups working in Haiti.  They respond back and pickup the chlorine at our warehouse in Port-au-Prince.   Already, organizations have agreed to pickup chlorine to provide disinfected water for over 385,250 Haitians.  Many more groups are in the process of submitting their chlorine request form.  Join our consortium, protect the families of Haiti.
