OLMC (Carmel, IN) helps in fight against cholera

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel (OLMC), a parish located in Carmel, IN, has had a long standing relationship with their sister parish, St. Antoine de Padua in Petite Riviere de Nippes. In late 2007, OLMC assumed responsibility for the Gift of Water program in Petite Riviere; the program had previously been funded and managed by the Visitation Clinic.

In just very short time, the program has blossomed under OLMC’s guidance and become the model for implementing and managing GoW in a local community. Mt. Carmel’s continues its committment to helping the Haitian people and there is no better evidence of that than yesterday’s distribution of 70 new systems to families in area. The availability of these systems is very timely and will certainly prove helpful in fighting cholera in the area.
