Pray for Kihomi Ngwemi and Nzunga Mabudiga, ministering in Haiti where Cholera is again on the rise.July 12, 2011
Kihomi and Nzunga
They write: Since our return from Congo, Kihomi
has been busy with different trainings on cholera prevention. She started in
Limbe where she had 163 women coming from 7 churches. From Limbe, she went to
Port-au-Prince (PAP) where cholera is on the raise again. The need is that
Kihomi and her team of trainers need to be going to all the different churches
to train more women at once.
While in Port-au-Prince she learned that in Fretas region people have not yet received any training since the cholera outbreak. A team of people went to this region and shared the aqua tab tablets without too much training. People did not know how to use those tablets and many died of misuse of tablets rather than from the epidemic itself.
The response of the people to the trainings is very encouraging to Kihomi and her team. They are strengthened to continue the education sessions in which they are deeply involved.
In the Batan area, out of 192 homes, only 25 had latrines before the cholera outbreak. Now people are building latrines and have built 7 so far. We pray that all the homes in the Batan area will one day have their own latrines. In the Mirebalais region where cholera first started, the area president is requesting some oral serum or dehydration solution.
We are here doing what we can to save lives because your prayers give us the strength we need to do the Lord’s work.
- Pray for Kihomi and Nzunga as they serve the people of Haiti in Jesus’ name.
- Pray for the people of Haiti as they continue to recover from the devastating earthquake of over a year ago.
- Pray for all who are seeking to keep the cholera epidemic in check.
