Staying Healthy in Port au Prince

Staying Healthy - thanks to you!
Staying Healthy - thanks to you!

What an extraordinary start to 2012 it’s been for EDV and our programme to provide health care and education to disaster survivors.

After working with orphanage directors and children in Port au Prince they’re now putting their new knowledge to work. We’re delighted to report that using what they’ve learned, illness is decreasing and general health improving.

These improvements in health would not have been possible without you. Your donations made it possible for Haitian orphans to avoid Cholera, worms, and work proactively to stop the spread of illness.

At EDV we’re now consolidating lessons learned in Haiti, bringing new partners on board, and preparing to provide health care and education around the world wherever and whenever disaster strikes.

Your generosity makes our work with survivors possible. Thanks so much for all you do, and we look forward to working with you in the future.

Take care, and our warmest regards from Haiti.
