CHOLERA OUTBREAK - DELMAS 31 Our neighborhood has been going through a cholera outbreak this week, specifically in the Cite Jeremie area. One of our students family was hospitalized at the Medecins Sans Frontieres Cholera Treatment Centre and early this morning we rushed a family member of Milo to the Cholera centre. We are reinforcing to our students cholera prevention tactics and using a lot of bleach for cleaning everything. Several of our students live in Cite Jeremie. We are wiping down walls, benches and tables inside the school shelters everyday. Pray the outbreak passes. Cholera is easily treatable but is deadly if action isn't taken quickly to prevent dehydration. Below is a good video about cholera and Haiti:
