Disciples Network Organizes to Educate on Cholera
October 26, 2010
Yesterday, we received a message from one of our Disciples Program leaders, Ysmaille Dorsainvil, who lives and works in the Central Plateau, where the cholera outbreak began. As soon as Ysmaille learned about the outbreak, he connected with a local nurse and organized a meeting with 38 members of his network as well as other community members. At the meeting, they learned about what cholera is, how it spreads, and how to avoid and treat it. Using the laptop he received as part of our Leaders Program training, Ysmaille downloaded, printed and distributed copies of Creole handouts about cholera that circulated on our listserv immediately after the outbreak began.
Here are a couple of pictures from the meeting. Ysmaille is wearing the striped shirt in the top picture.
