GSR helps fight cholera epidemic in Haiti

A cholera epidemic rages on in earthquake-ravaged Haiti, but the alumni and emeriti at Global Samaritan Resources (GSR) are doing their part to help lead efforts to reverse the public health crisis.
The Abilene-based international Christian humanitarian aid organization reports that northern Haiti – particularly a clinic in Limbe – sees hundreds of patients each week, and uses as many as 250 liters of IV fluid a day in its clinic to replenish liquids in victims.
GSR, which is located on part of the North First Street property once used as a campus by Abilene Christian University from 1906-29, also sends water purification systems and to Haiti and other third-world nations. Thirty of the $2,500 systems are currently running in Haiti, and each is capable of producing 50,000 or more gallons of clean water a day. But more are needed.
Larry Musick (’84) recently was named CEO of the organization, replacing professor emeritus of communication Dr. Ed Enzor (’59 M.A.), who is retiring. Enzor plans to return later as chancellor of GSR.
