Dow Chemical, MPHISE, WaterBrick: Cholera Treatment Test Pilots
Posted on February 3rd, 2012
(Grand’Anse, Haiti) – The MPHISE Phase II Cholera Epidemic Management Initiative has recently started four new Cholera Treatment Centers in the mountainous villages above Pestel. WaterBrick International is partnering with Dow Chemical to produce WaterBrick containers for four villages that will be used as a model for a larger scale initiative for the entire country. Dow will be funding resin for the test pilot to produce these WaterBrick containers and continue with our shared humanitarian efforts.
According to Joe Loeffler, the Vice President with Dow Chemical, “…we are confident that very good WaterBricks can be made from this resin to service the needs of getting clean water to areas of need.”
WaterBrick International will continue to work with Dow Chemical to support the MPHISE Phase II Initiative and stop the spread of Cholera in Haiti.
