Cholera Preparedness in Bas Limbe

Recently, the Bas Limbe region has experienced heavy rainfall. Many communities’ roads were impassable and rivers had flooded their banks. Farmlands were flooded and some livestock were washed into the Bas Limbe River.

However, many people took advantage of the downpour, by gathering up the hordes of crabs that came as a result.

Many members of the community commented that they had not seen this much rainfall since the cholera epidemic in 2010/2011.

Santé Pou Yo's community health workers have been reminding people in the community about the importance of treating their water and how to make oral rehydration solution. They have also been providing information sessions at homes, Bord de Mer Limbe's elementary school, and Santé Pou Yo's medical and prenatal clinics.
