The cholera outbreak in has thus far taken the lives of more than 1,600 people and hospitalized more than 70,000. At this point, we are aware of only one ICCM-sponsored child who has perished as a result of this unexpected epidemic. Recently, ICCM staff in received hundreds of Sawyer water filters to distribute where most needed to combat this deadly disease. The Free Methodist hospital in Dessalines, Haiti, is being used by Doctors Without Borders to treat many who are suffering. Please join us in vigilant prayer and compassionate responses. You can purchase and send a lifetime water filter costing $50 to Haiti through ICCM at this link.

Rick Ireland Reflects – Sat., Nov. 13

The cholera problem was identified as a major problem in the area around our hospital in Dessalines on a Friday and by Sunday we had mobilized a team of Haitian doctors, nurses, and community workers to go into the impacted area. The medical people helped the overworked staff at the hospital and the community workers went into the impacted area and passed out the 50,000 fliers with information on how to protect yourself from cholera and what to do if it strikes. The report I got back from , an American doctor, was that the Haitian team made a big difference. We didn’t stop the epidemic but we did do what we could do.

“So what do you do when faced with an impossible task? The Haitian church is planning a country wide education campaign. There are things one can do to prevent cholera and other things to do if it strikes that will increase your chance of survival. In the weeks ahead the churches will be very busy trying to help their communities. That’s what they can do. The church here long ago learned that you have to trust God for what is beyond you.

You might be wondering what you can do. First, please keep lifted up in prayer. It faces significant challenges as it rebuilds from an earthquake, a cholera epidemic, and a hurricane. If you want to do something a bit more hands-on, you might consider a donation toward clean water. For $50 you can buy a water filter that can help several families have safe water to drink. Just send your donation to Free Methodist World Missions, PO Box 535002, Indianapolis, IN 46253-5002 and mark your check, ‘Help Heal water filters.’ Another excellent way to help would be a donation to Clear Blue Global Water Project . This organization is actively drilling wells in many parts of the world, including Haiti. You can also donate to them by sending your check to Free Methodist World Mission and marking it ‘Global Water Project.’ The fact that you can’t do everything should not stop you from doing something.”
