Cold & Flu Prevention Outreach (July-Sept 09)
Unity in Disasters, Inc.'s outreach efforts continue to strive and have a positive impact on the community. Over the past few months, many organizations have discussed the current disaster--H1N1 “Pandemic Flu”.
Unity in Disasters, Inc. is finalizing a Disaster Preparation Community Project to address the strong potential for a second wave of the Flu that will affect our local community. Steps can be taken now that will decrease the percentage of people that can acquire and/or transmit this virus. We have outlined a general concept that outlines how a few faith-based groups active in disaster assistance can contribute to prevention directly relating to relief efforts. We hope your disaster relief ministries and other groups will be willing to assist and take advantage of this project over the next few months prior to the cold and flu season. 6/15/2009.
