EMERGENCY: CHOLERA OUTBREAK
Malnutrition, water shortages and now disease
Last month, late on a Friday afternoon, I received an urgent email from Valerie Browning, co-founder and programme director of the Afar Pastoralist Development Association (APDA).
I knew her email did not bode well when I saw the subject line: Terrible cholera crisis.
Valerie wrote quickly and urgently to tell me that a cholera outbreak was spreading through Teeru in the Afar region.
Just the day before a woman who arrived sick off a bus had died. It was that sudden.
This is a community already facing immense challenges and they need your support.
How will my donation save lives?
Cholera is an acute diarrheal bacterial infection caused by the ingestion of food or water contaminated with the bacterium.
However, cholera can be treated easily with simple hydration solutions
if those infected are identified early on.
But we all know the key to keeping healthy starts with
clean water and a healthy diet.
Your donation today…
With small interventions from our partners in Ethiopia, the cholera outbreak can be curbed and lives can be saved.
We focus on the needs of vulnerable Ethiopians at grass-roots level. This hinges on sustained relationships with trusted Ethiopian partners.
Our partners know the context and solutions; we listen and provide appropriate support. Growth and development are tracked in local communities using robust monitoring and evaluation. Partnerships continue as long as there’s a clear need and opportunities to make a lasting impact.
Our vision – an Ethiopia in which every person has access to quality education, healthcare and a life of dignity.
Our mission – breaking the cycle of poverty by enabling the poorest and most vulnerable and their communities to live with dignity, to build resilience and achieve real and sustainable solutions to the challenges they face.
