Rainy Season Poses Increased Threats from Waterborne Diseases
The rainy season, which begins mid-to-late March, increases the threat of waterborne disease and of disease-spreading mosquitoes, especially in the crowded camps that have sprung up throughout Haiti's capital city since the recent quakes. Save the Children's mobile clinics and medical teams are already seeing cases of diarrhea, malaria and respiratory infections.

The organization's staff is monitoring illnesses in camps, assessing the status of pregnant women and vulnerable children, and pre-positioning specific medications and supplies in preparation for a possible spike in disease when the rains come. About 170 health workers -- including midwives and auxiliary nurses -- are working with communities to encourage exclusive breastfeeding and to provide hygiene, nutrition and other health information.

Save the Children also is working hard to improve sanitation and bring clean water to families in temporary encampments. It has recently scaled up the distribution of shelter items, with a plan to reach 70,000 families over the coming weeks. About 12,000 displaced children and adults now have access to latrines, water points and bathing areas installed by Save the Children.

To complement the health programs and as part of its ongoing livelihoods work, Save the Children is hiring laborers to help clear or dig drainage ditches in and near camps where it works.

Save the Children has been assisting children and families in Haiti for more than three decades. With about 350 staff on the ground in Haiti, the agency has reached nearly half a million people affected by the recent earthquakes.
