Haiti Update: Treating Cholera

Ashley Wilkins - Hand of Hope Medical Missions Coordinator

The people of Haiti continue to battle through the effects of the devastating earthquake earlier this year, hurricane Tomas in late October and now are facing a new fight against the infectious disease cholera. Causing severe dehydration, left untreated, cholera can be deadly within hours. Prompt treatment is very important.

We continue to partner with our friends at the Love A Child Jesus Healing Center in Haiti to provide rapid response for the treatment of people who have contracted cholera. They have been literally saving lives, more than 385 people who have been diagnosed with cholera have been successfully treated in the past two weeks. We are continuing to help patients and families on a daily basis who have been affected by this epidemic and we are so grateful to our partners who help make these life saving treatments a possibility.

Please join us in prayer for healing emotionally, spiritually and physically in Haiti.

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
