From Mike Rusch:
What you can do about it:
1. Save your cereal boxes. The Haitian ladies are able to support their families by selling beautiful bead necklaces . . . made from cereal boxes. Instructions on where to send the cereal boxes can be found here.
$10/hour to staff the house where the cholera patients are housed = $240 per day
You could pay for just one hour at a time for $30.
Each lifesaving bag of IV fluid costs $3.82. The average patient will go through 15 bags = $57.30
You could pay for one bag of lifesaving fluid for $4.
You could cover the cost of keeping a patient alive for one day for $58.
They use 15 gallons of bleach per day sanitizing everything. Each gallon is $5 = $75 a day
Will you help them sanitize the place for one day? $75
Will you help them for a week? $525 donation
