Cholera -- No!

Description

Mobilizing quickly, World Vision is combating the spread of cholera in South Sudan.

The first suspected case was identified June 1 in a displaced persons camp on the outskirts of the capital city, Juba. Since then the waterborne disease has spread at an alarming rate. By July 7, 33 people had died and more than 700 cases had been identified in Juba.

Education on cholera prevention and detection are among the most urgent needs to curb the spread of the disease, says the national ministry of health.

World Vision provides training in prevention and treatment to school children, child protection volunteers, and social workers.

The training continues in Central Equatorial state public schools that were already working with World Vision.
