See some of the videos on YouTube about how next to nothing was done by the American Red Cross who was given millions of dollars from people in the US. MILLIONS just for water, and all the film groups found was one faucet in a public square. It will make you sick.
Oh, and the Red Cross declined to interview.
And then there's the one with the tent villiage with displaced people.( one of them ) that finally got 6 outhouses put up for hundreds of people, and the side of the outhouse has handwashing instructions on how to prevent the spread of disease, but there is NO WHERE to was your hands!!! It is soooo gross!!
Go to you tube and just type in Haiti one year later.
But I guess, what do you expect from those who caused the quake with HAARP in the first place. (they're not human)

According to the World Health Organization, "Cholera is an easily treatable disease. The prompt administration of oral rehydration salts to replace lost fluids nearly always results in cure." I realize that rehydration salts alone won't solve the problem with the unsanitary conditions that exist, but these people can be helped --and they should be helped. They've suffered so much already!

Signed and noted. Thanks, Nancy!

That peculiar phrase "take responsibility"?

How do I translate that into UN language?

Ty Nancy. The first week this was reported the high probability of "Cholera" breaking out was discussed. . .i'm quite sure there were profit margins to increase, lips licking lobster and yachts to sail some where that were deemed a much higher priority.

Sweat shops and tourist resorts have first priority. No time to care about Cholera.
