Medications to Fight the Cholera Outbreak

Recently, World Vision and Health Partners International of Canada have airlifted a shipment of cholera medications worth $4 million to Zimbabwe. The recent outbreak of the disease has already claimed 1,900 lives since August, and 38,000 people have been affected overall. As the rainy season begins this month, the disease is expected to spread even more quickly. Sending out medications at this critical time can be vital in saving the lives of children and families that are most vulnerable.
