cholera in haiti …

Fiammetta Cappellini writes from the scene in Haiti.

“The thing that concerns us most personally is the hotbed of the epidemic at Warf Jeremie, a neighborhood of Cité Soleil in the capital Port-au-Prince, where we help with the activities of Sister Marcella. We are all shocked by the escalation of the infection. From one suspect person in Marcella’s clinic, to the first verified death, in a few hours there were 4 dead … Tomorrow we will be occupied with bringing drinking water to Warf Jeremie, where more is always necessary, in quality and quantity … And soon the corpses will be a problem.”
