Hurricane Matthew has left behind widespread destruction across Haiti and killed over 900 people, now officials fear the death toll could increase as aid workers reach the worst-hit areas.
People are missing, hundreds are injured and over 600,000 are homeless. Worse still, there are warnings the aftermath could worsen the nation’s cholera epidemic, which killed at least 10,000 people after the 2010 earthquake (the earthquake killed over 250,000 in under one minute!).
From my time in Haiti, I can first hand report that this is a desperate situation and these people desperately need our help. There is one supply of water. It rushes through this broken down land full over EVERYTHING. Pollution, human pee, dead animals, peoples belongings. This water is used for bathing, cooking and even drinking. We MUST get fresh and clean water to those in desperate need.
An estimated 500,000 children live in the areas in the southern region most affected by Hurricane Matthew, UNICEF said in a statement. Agency representative Marc Vincent, who is in Haiti, said they are “still far from having a full picture of the extent of the damage” and “are hoping for the best, but bracing for the worst.”
I have been sent videos and images from my friends in Haiti which although show they are alive, depict the horrendous devastation which this poor county has to face once again.
Our school and orphanage are intact and fortunately nobody was hurt. Our main aim now is to get as much food, water and supplies to those in our community who have been left with nothing.
