Our teachers in the Artibonite area held special sessions to teach the children and their parents how to protect themselves and prevent the spread of Cholera in their community. This included simple measures such as the proper way to wash hands and disinfect water with chlorine bleach. The Government initially did not recognize what was causing the outbreak of illness in the area, but later identified it as cholera. As a precaution we closed schools for a few days to keep children from potentially spreading the disease among themselves. We then disinfected the schools, reopened and started prevention education to children and their families. We are contuning to educate parents and children at schools in other parts of the country on the ways that they can help to prevent the spread of Cholera.
