Love A Child just distributed more of our interlocking and stackable WaterBrick water and food storage containers in their new Miracle Village in the town of Fond Parisien outside of Port-Au-Prince. Some earthquake survivors, in the Love A Child Miracle Village, have moved into their newly built homes but many are still living in tents as you can see in the picture attached.
When explaining the need for clean water containers, like WaterBrick, Sherry Burnette with Love A Child said, “this is especially important now since we have a huge Cholera epidemic here in Haiti”. However, Sherry said that, “this time we packed each WaterBrick with macaroni, oatmeal and cereal” but the families can reuse WaterBrick’s for water and food for many years to come. When giving them to children, Sherry also noted that, “these WaterBricks are easy for small children to carry to their home or their hut”.
Since the Haiti earthquake on January 12th of last year, we continue to raise donations to provide clean WaterBrick water and food containers, 8,400 distributed so far, and have provided 3,500 gallons of bleach and chlorine to help fight the Cholera outbreak. To date, over 3,400 people have died due to the Cholera outbreak and it actually accelerated in December so the need is still great.
