Best laid plans. Rosedanie arrived in Haiti November 2nd just as the cholera epidemic was rapidly overtaking the people of Limbé. All plans for work on projects were set aside, and she began to regroup in an effort to do all possible to prevent the further spread of disease. Following some very frustrating attempts at obtaining supplies and information, she simply elected to take it upon herself to organize an every-changing group of volunteers and begin door-to-door canvassing to educate residents in prevention of the disease. It would seem obvious that with major international ngos working there, Helping Hands Noramise (HHN) could obtain prevention supplies such as bleach, soap, and rehydration packets for distribution. That has not proven to be the case, and has afforded HHN the opportunity to experience first hand the difficulty of accessing aid. Cholera will be a fact of life in Haiti for the foreseeable future. Access to clean water and adequate sanitation, scarce in the country, are the key to survival. This is where our efforts are now focused.
