A mom wanted to give a testimony to God’s power because she saw that her child was sick and swollen with malnutrition.  She tried many things and he could never be healthy.  She sees that the care, medications, and food given have helped her child, but she had tried some of these things before.  After talking to the nurse and chaplain, she knew that she needed to dedicate herself and her household to God.  She gives God the glory for healing her son and making him whole again.  She is so happy to see him play and laugh again.

    Hi I am a research student from the United States studying Haiti and the cholera outbreak that occurred a couple years ago. From my understanding, cholera is still affecting the country. I was wondering if I could find out more about what people did in response to the cholera outbreak? What preventative and treatment methods were used, and did they prove successful? Were there things that were not successful? What is still being done today to control cholera and spread education about the issue? Any information would be helpful!!! Thank you.
