As Cholera Outbreak Spreads, World Vision Deploys Teams to Distribute Emergency Health Supplies, Focus on Preventative Measures
Date:10/24/2010

"If this hits our camps, we are going to need a lot of support. It could spread very rapidly; we must be ready to react immediately. This is why we are stepping up prevention efforts, pre-positioning supplies and establishing contingency plans," Lubin said.

World Vision is conducting a mass distribution of soap in Port-au-Prince, as well as cleaning and desludging all of the latrines in camps where the organization is present. Staff are also continuing to check the chlorination levels on all water that they supply. Additional hand washing stations are being installed in camps, and World Vision is educating residents on the importance of hand washing and hygiene.

"We are coordinating with the Ministry of Health, the World Health Organization, and other agencies to respond effectively and efficiently," Nolen said. "Quick identification and treatment is vital to containing the outbreak."

World Vision has identified sites within its camps to serve as quarantine areas in Port-au-Prince should the outbreak reach the city. Staff are being trained to identify the symptoms of cholera and are positioning trucks that will be able to take suspected cases to the hospital for treatment.  World Vision is also working to make sure its staff are protected by providing them with face masks and gloves.

World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. For more information, please visit, www.worldvision.org/press
