Haiti Doctors Warn of Cholera Crisis After Hurricane Matthew in October 2016

The Haiti cholera epidemic has rocked the Western Hemisphere's poorest nation with another emergency to deal with following the catastrophic earthquake that killed more than a three hundred thousand people


The Haiti cholera epidemic has rocked the Western Hemisphere's poorest nation with another emergency to deal with following the catastrophic earthquake that killed more than a three hundred thousand people and left millions homeless with many still living in tents six years later!

During the earthquake United Caribbean Trust (UCT), a Barbadian registered charity #842, focused on relief supplies and clean water distribution.

Jenny Tryhane was able to return to St Marc prison for third time to distribute clothing and toiletries to the inmates.

As many will remember Jenny Tryhane, the founder, was in Haiti during the earthquake and stayed on for 3 months to distribute three 40 foot containers donated by the generous people in Barbados.

Now Haiti has being impacted not only by another outbreak of cholera but hurricane Matthew with 140 mph winds and 20 inches of rain. Les Cayes, where UCT has its main headquarters, is one of the hardest-hit towns on the southwest coast of Haiti.

Unicef warned. “This is the worst storm Haiti has seen in decades, and the damage will no doubt be significant,” said Marc Vincent, the Unicef representative in Haiti. “Waterborne diseases are the first threat to children in similar situations. Our first priority is to make sure children have enough safe water.”

Haiti is facing a surge in cholera cases in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, doctors warned as the death toll on the devastated island climbed past 1,000.

Following the earthquake in 2010 UCT distributed over 250 Sawyer PointOne filters into schools, orphanages, St Marc Prison, slums such as City Soleil and hundreds of churches.

UCT is appealing to Barbados for donations to purchase more Sawyer Point One Filters.

Due to a 50% discount from Sawyer Haiti we are able to offer the family filter with bucket at US $25 and a Community filter with 55 gal drum that can service a school with 300 children will now cost US $50.

The Sawyer Point One Filter is the fastest, easiest and most cost efficient way to get safe drinking water especially for large organizations because it can produce up to 300 gallons of drinking water a day, cleaner than US bottled water anywhere in the world!


• Simple gravity operated design, no movable breakable parts.


• Easy to maintain and use.

We are in an excellent position to distribute the water filters because we have an good network of pastors and teachers within Haiti to assist with distribution spearheaded by our Haiti representative Pastor Pierre Banes Laurore who is based in Les Cayes, one of the worst hit areas.

"It seems to me like a nuclear bomb went off," said Paul Edouarzin, a United Nations Environmental Program employee based near Port-a-Piment. "In terms of destruction — environmental and agricultural — I can tell you 2016 is worse than 2010," he added, referring to the devastating 2010 earthquake from which Haiti has yet to recover.


Please help us to help Haiti. A team from Barbados has already departed to assist with the distribution of these filters and ensure transparency working with our UCT Haiti representative Pastor Banes Lourore.
