Organization Pushes for Sustainable Solutions to Cholera, Typhoid

By Wyatt Massey

Stopping the spread of disease is one of the most pressing issues in the country after the hurricane. As of Oct. 25, PANO/WHO estimated 3,423 suspected cholera cases. Cholera is a virus, spread by contaminated water, that severely dehydrates those with the disease. Haiti’s Ministry of Health announced a vaccination campaign starting Nov. 8 to bring 1 million oral vaccines to areas affected by cholera.

Haiti Needs Another Marshall Plan

By Garry Pierre-Pierre

But the question that no one wants to address is why are natural disasters taking such a huge toll on Haiti. It’s not because we believe in Vodou, or that there is an international conspiracy, or that God is upset at us as I’ve often heard from various folks.

Let’s Vote for Hillary Clinton and Deal With Her Haiti Misdeeds Tomorrow

Haitian Government Complicit in Large Death Tolls

By Garry Pierre-Pierre

Haitians for the most part, explain their troubles, challenges and miseries as the will of God. You were in an accident; it was God’s will for you. You lost your job, you got it; God had a plan for you.

That is why we’re often described as resilient. After all, God is greater than man and his power omniscient. You cannot argue with God. Such fatalism does allow us to live under conditions that would create swift and immediate revolution just about in any other country.

Haiti: Dog Eat Dog World

By: Tadia Toussaint

PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI – Dogs are everywhere in Haiti: under parked cars, dead on the roadside, roaming the streets. Not only are they everywhere but they’re hungry. You find dogs climbing the piles of trash on the street corners with their noses buried looking for just about anything to relieve their hunger.
