Saving Lives in Zimbabwe
For many of us it is difficult to visualize what exactly Cholera prevention looks like in rural Africa. Knowledge is the key where resources are scarce. Life-saving re hydration for someone stricken by Cholera can be as basic as sugar, salt and water. Alfred Jagada, ASAP's Project Manager, shares these photos from a recent staff training session in rural Zimbabwe where over 3,300 have already died from the disease. ASAP is working together with Catholic Relief Services and UNICEF to help prevent the spread of Cholera in the Eastern districts of Zimbabwe.
