Cholera Kills 1555 In Nigeria

This makes us sad.

Nigeria is being plagued with a cholera outbreak that has taken more than 1,500 lives so far. It’s the worst outbreak in recent years — three times higher than last year and seven times higher than 2008. 40,000 have become infected, and women and children make up 4 of every 5 cases.

Cholera is spread when someone eats food or drinks water infected with the disease. Because two-thirds of rural Nigerians lack access to safe drinking water, and fewer than 40 percent of people in affected areas have access "to toilet facilities of any description,” the disease is spreading easily.

Keep Nigeria in your thoughts, and if you can, fine a place to donate money!
