CHOLERA-OUTBREAK

What is cholera?

Cholera is an acute diarrheal disease caused by an infection in the intestines that can kill even a healthy adult in a matter of hours. Symptoms, including severe watery diarrhea, can surface in as little as two hours or up to five days after infection, and can then trigger extreme dehydration and kidney failure. With such a short incubation period, cholera can easily explode into an outbreak, as is the case currently in Central Haiti where there have been over 135 confirmed deaths.

AFED Chairman’s Message:

I am very grateful to all our Jamaats in mainland Africa and in the Indian Ocean Islands of Madagascar and Reunion for their unflinching support and commitment towards this annual event of the Africa Federation. Solidarity Day also marks the auspicious occasion of the birth anniversary of Imam-e-Zamana (ATFS), and the occasion has been chosen for fund raising through various activities organized by our Jamaats. Donation of any sums, whether small or big reflects the nobility and generosity of our community members in fulfilling religious and moral obligations we have towards charity and helping the poor and less fortunate members of our community. I wish to applaud youths (both girls and boys) of our community in all our Jamaats who worked with great dedication and spearheaded the entire project, and I look forward for the same zest in the coming year – Inshaállah. Thank you all very much.

CHB HEALTH BULLETIN

VITAMIN D3

Vitamin D3 is one of the most useful nutritional tools we have at our disposal for improving overall health. This vitamin is unique because (Vitamin D3) is a vitamin that acquires hormone-like actions when it is converted to Calcitriol by the liver and kidneys. As a hormone, Calcitriol controls phosphorus, calcium, and bone metabolism and neuromuscular function. Vitamin D3 is the only vitamin the body can manufacture from sunlight (UVB). Yet, with today’s indoor living and the extensive use of sunscreens due to concern about skin cancer, we are now a society with millions of individuals deficient in life-sustaining bone building and immune modulating Vitamin D3.


Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Vitamin D sufficiency prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporosis.
