There is a Cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe, Southern Africa. The UN reported today that there have been 18,413 cases and 978 deaths – most of these reported in a suburb of the capital city of Harare, and another 26 percent in a town that borders South Africa.
Cholera is a treatable disease (just rehydrate the person) before it kills quickly. The disease is spreading to South Africa, Mozambique, and Botswana.
80% of the country does not have access to clean safe drinking water and adequate sanitary facilities. These conditions allow this acute intestinal infection to spread.
Pray for them.
