I have returned to Canada for 4 weeks and thought you would be interested in our most recent experience with Allimax.
Starthrower Foundation has two education support centres in the north of Haiti, one in the mountain village of St. Raphael , the other in Cap-Haitien. Currently we support a total of 170 secondary and postsecondary students.
When I returned to Cap-Haitien in November , the cholera epidemic was at its height. I had travelled with a large portion of the Allimax your company so generously donated. One by one I met with each of our students based in Cap, explained what Allimax was and how it worked and offered it to them on a daily basis for 2 months. Everyone chose to take it.
I did not have enough to make the same offer to our students up in the mountains. The results were very telling. The Cap-Haitien group had NO cases of cholera, while in Sen Rafayel there were 12 reported cases. The difference was significant but not unexpected.
Now when our young people become ill, the first thing they ask when they come to the centre is " W gen Allimax-la?" Trans: Do you have any Allimax? It's part of their vocabulary and their lives.
Thank you again for your generosity. I will be taking the remainder of the donation with me the first of June.Had it been possible to transport the entire case at one time, our young people in St. Raphael could have been spared a terrrible illness which has jeopardized their year at school.
