Cholera is a preventable disease. Yet, this highly contagious disease has infected 661,716, killed 8,253 (3/14/13) people in Haiti and over 500 people in the Dominican Republic since 2010.The Haitian sanitation infrastructure continues to be grossly inadequate and severely lacking in medical services to treat the millions of people currently at risk of cholera and other diseases.

      The strike itself was fairly effective in the capital but very solid in the provincial towns, such as Ti Goave, St. Marc, Gonaïves, Miragoane, Aquin, Hinche, Maissade, etc. Its power was expressed in the militant mass marches, 2,000 striking teachers in St. Marc and 1,000 or more in the capital.

      I have been watching young children and the elderly perish in Haiti from this epidemic because they dont have access to basic human right services.

      As close as the island of Hispanola is to the United States, it is a shame that help is not given. This island has a lot of history that help build the United States and to see the US turn its back is sad.
