Local organization helping Haitians asks for nutritional shakes
Sow a Seed volunteers rush to help prevent more death in Haiti
MIAMI – As Haiti deals with a public health emergency, a local nonprofit organization was asking donors in Miami-Dade for cases of nutritional shakes.
After the Category 4 storm killed hundreds Oct. 4, Haitians face the risk of Cholera-contaminated water and food.
After reports of at least 200 suspected new cholera cases since the hurricane hit, The World Health Organization was sending 1 million doses of cholera vaccine to Haiti. But experts believe that's not going to be enough.
"It's not looking good," Dr. Unni Krishnan, director of Save the Children's Emergency Health Unit in Haiti. "We should act very quickly."
Sow a Seed has two "drop off/ship to" locations: The USL, 4141 NW 36 Ave., in Miami, and Print Giants, 155 NE 73 St., in Miami. The donations should be boxed and labeled "USL/Donate Haiti/SAS."
