Chokwe Floods – Urgent healthcare needs

With dirt widespread everywhere, 
infectious diseases are expected to be on the rise

The biggest concern in Chokwe at the moment is the widespread of diseases such as diarrhoea and malaria. The stale waters and the rapidly deteriorating hygienic conditions for the children and families turned homeless by the floods are already causing severe cases of illness. The CRPE Orphan Centre is asking for all the help they can gather in identifying and treating the most urgent cases of diarrhoea. With no movement in the flood waters and the seasonal heat, the families sleeping outside are also very exposed to malaria. These conditions are expected to bring an outburst in diseases.

The UPG volunteers on the ground are still working with brother Licinio to continue to evaluate the more serious cases. We are looking for local support of any doctors that could help us in this field.
