Program to fight cholera in the DRC
Our African partners ASED (Action for Health, the Environment and Development) and Maji-Maisha Antenna are also organising some very special action for World Water Day.
Cholera is endemoepidemic in the region to the north of Lake Tanganyika (the Uvira area/Sud-Kivu Province in the DRC).
Objectives of the action :
1. Inform the public about ways of obtaining safe water, by means of the various techniques and methods now available.
2. Distribute free bottles of disinfectant (sodium hypochlorite made using WATA technology).
These bottles of disinfectant are to treat water and make it drinkable in the households which are most affected by cholera and in Cholera Treatment Centres for those suffering from the disease.
