Instead of Christmas presents
BOKELA supports nph in the fight against cholera in Haiti
“nph Children's Aid Latin America” is an international charity that cares for vulnerable children in Latin America. Since 2009 the German office of nph has been right next to BOKELA. From the beginning we were and are so impressed by our neighbors' project work that we decided to donate to nph instead of sending our customers and partners Christmas presents. That is why BOKELA has been supporting nph projects on a regular basis ever since.
Cholera is back in Haiti. The October cholera outbreak continues to this day. The Haitian government only reported in 2020 that it had successfully combated cholera.
But the country is in crisis. In addition to the complex economic and social problems, poverty, hunger and inadequate health care make people's lives a daily struggle for survival. The lack of access to clean drinking water is one of the main reasons why cholera could break out again.
Cholera is an infectious disease that is easily curable. In Haiti, however, the infection is often fatal, and it is primarily children who are at risk. It is estimated that more than 50 percent of children are malnourished. The medical care is insufficient. Many of the girls and boys are in poor health, so they can become dehydrated quickly. They need medical help to get back on their feet
nph provides emergency medical assistance
In the nph children's hospital in St. Damien, sick children are helped quickly and effectively. Within a very shot time, a station for the treatment of sick children was set up there - with additional staff and medicines.
To be able to provide this help, the hospital needs support.
The team urgently needs
- Antibiotics and other medicines used to treat diarrhea
- Life-saving intravenous infusions
- Additional social workers going out to the affected neighborhoods of Carrefour Feuille and Brooklyn in Cite de Soleil to distribute clean water and medicine.
With this year's donation we would like to support nph.
