Cholera Outbreak in Haiti
No one should get sick, much less die, from cholera.
Yet in Haiti, the cholera epidemic isn't over. Hurricane Sandy passed over Haiti October 24. In its aftermath, rivers are swelling with the rains, and Partners in Health is already seeing increased cholera cases in Petite Rivière and expect to see cases in other areas as well.
Since Haiti's cholera outbreak began following the 7.0 magnitude earthquake in January 2010, PIH has treated more than 80,000 patients, trained over 2,000 health workers to identify and treat cholera in the community, and, in 2012, introduced the country's first large-scale vaccination campaign.
You can help save lives. Donations through this Gift That Gives More™ provide vital IV fluids and oral rehydration treatments, clean water for hospitals and communities, and extra wards and clinics to treat cholera patients in Haiti.
