Haiti - Cholera : The Health Centre of Allegue, call for help
The Health Centre Evangelical of the Mission for Christ, of the locality of Allegue of the 10th Palmes of Petit-Goâve, notes a upsurge of cholera cases from Delattes (7th communal section). In two days, more than 20 cholera patients have been transported, in particularly difficult conditions to the Health Center of the Mission.

"Patients are transported in the arms of men to Allegue, the course lasts 4 hours, feces dumped on the road by infected persons pose a risk of propagation of the cholera epidemic in the rural areas. Every day new cases are recorded," informed Pastor Mainviel Levy, Head of the Mission.

"This health center needs nurses and inputs such as cholrox, soap, saline, oral rehydration so that it can continue to treat patients. Our capacity is limited. We appeal to the authorities of the Ministry of Public Health and of the Municipal Health Unit Goavienne. The opening of a Cholera Treatment Centre (CTC) is a necessity in Delattes," stated Dr. Beneche Martial, Director of the Centre.

Remember that all CTC of Petit Goâve were closed for lack of funding, NGOs have withdrawn and the State currently does not ensure the functioning of CTCs.
