    Getting the DTC Ready

    DAY 360

    Healing Paint

    On Days 333 and 334 we shared a little about how our fantastic health team in Kalma fought off a terrible cholera outbreak and how they were preparing in case history repeats itself.

    Our team had one more project they wanted to complete related to the diarrhea treatment center (DTC) in Kalma Camp. Hundreds of people had moved through the DTC at the height of the outbreak. The building did all that it needed to do, but it was left a little worse for wear. And once things settled down, our team shifted their focus to matters that had gone unattended during the outbreak. That left the DTC looking a little sad.

    So our team at Kalma’s Sector 1 Health Center – home of the DTC – suggested a simple, fresh coat of paint.

    Paint can do wonders. And once a single white coat of paint was up on those walls, inside and outside the DTC, our team was already feeling better about being ready for the next emergency.

    “We needed this,” said Dr. Fadua who runs the Health Center. “Even a little paint makes a difference.”
