Haiti assessment #4
Tomorrow I speak to about 65 of our project representative who will become our "prevention specialists" responsible for continuous cholera prevention education. I'll be going over the physical findings and how to assess dehydration in children in addition to reviewing the use of chlorine, soap, and the water filters. I can't say it enough. Our projects are in good shape and the children are receiving the best that we can give them.
And so if you're wondering why all the fuss, if you could see what is happening outside the "walls" of our projects, you would see devastation and despair that is never ending. It is hard to imagine.
So for now, we push forward and in all things give thanks.
