HEPATITIS OUTBREAK IN SAN DIEGO KILLS 17
San Diego requested emergency services from Homeland Security due to a hepatitis A epidemic that has killed 17 and sickened at least 421 people.
Crews wearing hazmat suits were spraying sidewalks with bleach on Friday to help curb the disease outbreak.
Hepatitis A is spread through urine and feces and the epidemic has been blamed on lack of restrooms and sanitation for a large community of homeless living in San Diego.
If a pedestrian walks through infected urine on the street and later touches their shoes, the disease can spread easily and quickly.
Sidewalks are being sprayed and the homeless have been moved away from large sidewalk encampments. City crews also moved homeless people out of campsites along the San Diego River.
News sources have not reported what alternatives, if any, were provided the homeless.
The United States has an outbreak of homelessness, especially throughout California, including San Francisco and San Diego.
The homeless population consists of people that have been unemployed for extended periods of time, but also include those who abuse drugs and alcohol and those who are suffering from mental health issues.
Cities frequently confiscate the few belongings the homeless possess and order them to leave the community. With billions of tax dollars flowing through their budgets, cities should have recovery services available to the homeless, but they are generally very inadequate and sometimes nonexistent.
Christian organizations, such as the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRMs), which rely on donations to help the homeless, are very effective. If you know someone, or perhaps even a family that is homeless, please direct them to AGRM (800) 4RESCUE (800-473-7283). They have about 300 missions in communities throughout North America and they display a map with mission locations on their website: www.agrm.org, or http://www.agrm.org/agrm/Locate_a_Mission.asp.
The Association of Gospel Rescue Missions was established in 1913 and they have been leading souls to Christ, feeding the hungry, providing housing and all around recovery services to the homeless.
Homelessness is epidemic throughout the United States. Please consider donating to AGRM to help provide essential services to the homeless and lead them to Jesus Christ – the Answer.
“…Truly, I say unto you, inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, you have done it unto Me…Truly, I say unto you, inasmuch as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to Me” Matthew 25:40, 45.
As we help someone in need, we do it for Christ – this is how God considers our gifts.
Jesus also said concerning the last days,
“Nation shall rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in diverse places” Matthew 24:7 (emphasis added).
Things will not improve before the Lord returns; they will only wax worse. In the meantime, we have an opportunity to store treasures in heaven by helping those who are in need. God bless you!
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
