Help given to stop cholera in Nepal

The newly founded Metro Detroit Rotaract Club –the service club founded by Dustin Tierney following his trip to Nepal in 2008- received an email from the Kathmandu Mid-Town Rotaractors to help prevent the spread of cholera in Nepal. It had been two years the last case was reported in Nepal but 300 deaths were reported. The cure is to give hygiene education to the villagers and bottles of chlorine. Dr Tuladhar reported back that 8657 vials of chlorine were packaged by the youth volunteers.
