In mid-October 2022, a cholera outbreak began spreading through Haiti, located primarily in the west of the country and Port-au-Prince. To date, 42 participants and their families have been impacted by the outbreak, as well as 17 Child Development Centers (CDCs) where the participants were attending. The Compassion Haiti National Office health specialists are training the CDC staff and together they are working on an intervention plan and rapid actions are being taken to address the outbreak. The CDC staff are sending all affected participants and their family members to healthcare facilities and are sharing wise water practices to raise awareness in their communities.

Please rest assured that we will notify you as soon as possible if your child is affected in any way. Please pray for the safety of our participants, their families, and the CDC staff in this area. Compassion Haiti will keep us updated as more information becomes available.
