Our Response to the Cholera Outbreak in Zambia

Dear Friend: Zambia has been going through a cholera outbreak since last October. With more than 19,000 cases, 600 deaths, and a case fatality rate of 3.5% this is the worst cholera outbreak since 2017. The government has launched an aggressive campaign deploying oral vaccines to curb the spread of cholera.

For the last two months, our ground team has pivoted into cholera prevention and has been providing chlorine to treat drinking water and hand sanitizers, attending to families, and educating families. The most time-consuming part has been in the continuous monitoring and reinforcing of cholera prevention behavior. As a result, there has not been a single case of cholera amongst beneficiary families (>6,000 adults and children). However, since the root cause of cholera is lack of access to clean water, our goal is to provide Safe Water Filtration systems and training to benefit 7000-10,000 adults and children who lack access to clean water.

Thanks, as always, for your continued actions to educate children and provide a safe environment for children to play and learn.
