World Vision is helping to fight a cholera outbreak which has so far killed an estimated 30-45 people in two of the worst slums in Nairobi located in the Mathare and Korogocho areas. Working with other relief agencies, World Vision will be responsible for emptying pit latrines, purchasing water purifiers and providing high calorie food to the gravely sick cholera patients admitted in health centres in the slum areas. There is no reliable safe water in the area and sewage is flowing freely along the alleys in the two slums.
