This 2013 photograph was captured three years after the country of Haiti had suffered the ravages of a 7.0 magnitude earthquake. Ten months after the 2010 catastrophic quake, a cholera outbreak began to spread through the country, at which time epidemiologic investigations, and accompanying laboratories, were set up throughout the island nation, in order to combat this bacterial infection. Also implemented was a campaign to bottle large quantities of chlorine bleach that were distributed, as a way to fight cholera across Haiti. The bleach was bottled using the spigots depicted here. The sign, “Remplissage Bouteilles”, when translated into English reads, “Filling Bottles”.
