Our Community Problem

Members of our community in Waycross, Georgia have been developing a wide-range of health issues. People are developing tumors, they are being diagnosed with cancer, developing memory loss problems, liver or kidney failures, heart attacks or heart related problems, neurological problems and other complex health issues that remain unsolved. Silent Disaster and been researching and conducting investigative reporting into these issues and the results so far have been startling. We are finding that the silent enemy that has invaded our community is named TOXIC WASTE!

Our Story

We have many needs but our foremost need is to conduct additional soil and water testing to more accurately pinpoint the source(s) responsible for the toxins. Next, we also need to have air sampling conducted. One of our most urgent needs is for relocation of people with the worst illnesses. Many in our community have no place to go, no insurance coverage, and they lack the funds to leave their home so they stay where they are and continue to grow more and more sick.

Ways You Can Help

Our immediate objectives are to have additional soil, water, and air testing completed to help us determine the exact toxins present. The costs for professional lab analysis have been determined to be $5,394.00. We need your support today to help us save innocent lives; especially babies and children who are currently exposed.

We have obtained records from the City of Waycross on the Superfund Site. The fee was only $85.00 but to obtain more detailed documentation from the EPA costs $2,700.00. The EPA records will enable health physicians and scientists to determine the extent of the toxins that have invaded the area. Also, these records can offer the understanding necessary to obtain the best possible treatments to SAVE lives.
