Cholera Training Provided for Over 100 People

Talking about River Safety with Visual Aids

EDV volunteers recently returned from a cholera and disease prevention training in Fond de Negres. Attended by more than 100 community members, this series of trainings focused on preventing cholera as well as general water safety and how to prevent illness.

These kinds of trainings do more than impart essential information – they also place health in the control of the community. Armed with the knowledge they need, community members can protect their loved ones as well as themselves.

Each person who attended one or more trainings received a card for their attendance. This certificate proves they were present and has the essential facts of water purification, such as how much bleach to use to purify water.

While these efforts contain cholera, they also build connections as part of our larger push to improve health education in the communities where we work. This health education programme aims to control cholera and do much more.

We could never have provided these essential trainings without the support of donors like you. We’re excited to hold more classes and we hope you’ll be a part of giving more Haitians the tools they need to contain cholera by donating today or sharing this page.

Again, thanks so much for all you’ll already done.

Warm Regards,
