MCC BC AGM 2019: A Journey of Hope - Abbotsford, BC

Sometimes, we come along just as hope is almost lost.

Prévenir le choléra en Haïti

Dans les communautés isolées d’Haïti où le choléra représente une menace mortelle, les latrines et les points de lavage des mains peuvent littéralement sauver des vies.

En 2016, lorsqu’une nouvelle épidémie de choléra a éclaté dans la communauté de montagne de Wopisa-Gabriyèl en Haïti, Precius Estilus était parmi les premiers à tomber malade. Tôt un matin, alors qu’il rassemblait ses outils pour travailler dans son jardin, il a ressenti une faiblesse soudaine et extrême.

Vers 11 heures du matin, il s’est mis à vomir. Un ami l’a encouragé à aller voir le médecin et ils ont entamé la longue descente vers le centre de traitement du choléra le plus proche.
