Once again, Haiti is in the international news with a Cholera outbreak in the Artibonite Region less than 20 miles from our headquarters in Pignon, Haiti. This morning after spending all afternoon Sunday going through remaining donated supplies, Caleb sent two pickup trucks loaded with cleaning supplies and gloves that we still had in stock. They are headed to Verettes and the community of Petit Rivere, two of the hardest hit communities to be distributed by the Rotary Clubs of the Artibonite.
Further, Caleb has made arrangements with Missionary Flights International to fly in supplies worth $15,000 to Port au Prince for distribution through the Rotary Clubs there. These supplies will include: more gloves, IV fluids, IV lines, oral rehydration solution, and cleaning supplies. This past Sunday, we made 1,000 copies of Dr. Kris Thede’s information on Cholera prevention in Kreyol for area residents. It was gratifying to see all the church members carefully reading and saving this life saving information.
Please be praying that solutions can be found quickly to stop the spread of it. We will continue to intervene as the Lord provides.
