Haiti Cholera Impact Continues

WaterBrick containers continue to be distributed to other remote areas of Haiti to families in dire need.  WaterBricks, now used by families as their portable pantries, are being distributed by not only  the Love A Child Foundation, but also by World Vision and Partners in Health.   The picture here shows our WaterBrick container being used to collect water at one of their well sites.  Continuing to distribute WaterBricks for clean water and food storage while providing bleach for sanitation, is key in helping Haiti recover from not only its devastation, but also its current outbreak of cholera.

The BBC reported in March, that the cholera outbreak is said to be far worse than was originally predicted and that it will take far longer to control.  In fact, "latest figures show there have been 252,640 cases and 4,672 deaths.”  A spokesman for the World Health Organization said, “We really need to reconstruct water and sanitation systems for the cholera epidemic to go away completely.  It's a long-term process and cholera is going to be around for a number of years yet."  But the researchers say thousands of lives could be saved by provision of clean water, vaccination and expanded access to antibiotics.
