Cholera Strikes Emmaus School

Dear Loved Ones,

Greetings.

Yesterday Thursday November 10, the Emmaus Elementary School in our Haut-Limbe village gave RELIV, a powdered dietary supplement, to his school kids. Beside 15 or so who did not come to school that day, the rest of them, close to 135 drank the prepared powder solution. Now most of them are sick with Cholera. Our Ebenezer clinic is full with sick children. In some of the small beds, 3 sick children share the same bed. Interesting enough even the wife of the founder of the school is sick even though she did not drink the powered milk solution.

What is amazing is that the school is only two houses down from the Ebenezer clinic where we gave a water purifier for the community. And that school is only 3 minutes walk from the university where we have another water purifier.

The Bible will always be right when it declares that my people are dying because of lack of knowledge.

Please join us as we pray specially for those sick children and the founder who is morally crushed down by bad and nasty comments from the people.

Also pray for Kihomi with her Cholera education program as it is becoming more and more challenging.



Yours in Haiti,

Nzunga & Kihomi

 

 

Dear Friends,

Once again we see how vulnerable people in Haiti are to disease especially the children.  I and ten others will leave Sunday to travel to Haiti and we will have two more water purifiers with us.  How wonderful it would be if Christians would give enough money so we could have enough purifiers that all Haitians could be drinking pure water.  This nightmare Nzunga has described happens over and over again in the developing world.   It is the leading cause of death for children.  Experts have calculated if all Christians tithed this and most of the other deadly problems could be overcome.  Of course I am preaching to the choir because you do care and support this ministry.  Thanks again.
