Ocean Beach Kiwanis Canine Carnival 2016
Today the Ocean Beach Kiwanis Club held their 11th annual Canine Carnival at Dusty Rhodes Park in Ocean Beach. Another great event. More pictures will be on the Ocean Beach Kiwanis Facebook Page.
Water4Life at the Canine Carnival
Today the Point Loma Kiwanis Club had a booth at the Ocean Beach Kiwanis Club Canine Carnival raising money for Water4Life. The current push is to get 500 water filters to Haiti to help in that hurricane devastated country. Below is the email Rudy received from Haiti.
Here are some bullet points of what we are working on and currently seeing in the Southern Peninsula:
We are on the ground leading aid relief to the hardest hit areas and coordinating relief and distribution efforts with hundreds of partner organizations Working in conjunction with USAID, World Food Programme, Samaritans Purse, the US Military, and many more…
Have mobilized over 1.5 million meals to the Southern Peninsula, as well as bottled water and medical supplies. We are providing aid via helicopters, barges, and trucks. There are still many UNREACHED areas with people who have gone a week now with no food, water, or shelter. Cholera is spreading in areas. Currently setting up cholera treatment facilities in multiple points between Jeremie and Les Cayes. We are concerned the fatalities from starvation and cholera could greatly surpass the number killed in the storm
Needs: FOOD, AIR SUPPORT FOR DROPS, AQUATABS AND WATER FILTERS, MEDICAL SUPPLIES FOR CHOLERA AND MALARIA, AND LUMBER
Long-term food supply sustainability is a concern. 90% of crops and chickens have been destroyed along coastal areas. We need partners and donors to help create sustainability in the food supply, and we are working hard on finding a solution for this!
We are praying for continued favor in our relief efforts and that logistics line up in a way that we can get to the areas that haven’t received any relief yet! Excited to hear about the first 500 filters coming to Haiti. They will be a huge component of the ongoing cholera prevention plan.
Thanks again, Rudy!
