Haiti: 1 million in camps, 100,000 with cholera
Catholic World News - December 24, 2010
Vatican Radio presents a sobering picture of life in Haiti nearly a year after the earthquake that claimed more than 200,000 lives.
“Even though there’s been a decrease in the number of refugees living in the camps, there are still close to one million,” says Jean-Daniel Lefontant of Catholic Relief Services. Nearly 105,000 have been sickened with cholera, and 2,500 have died.
