Amnesty International, Haitian Activists Call On U.N. To More Thoroughly Address Cholera In Haiti

Associated Press: Groups: U.N. must provide ‘justice’ for Haiti cholera victims
“Five years after cholera started a deadly march across this poor Caribbean country, international and Haitian human rights activists asserted Tuesday that the U.N. is failing to provide justice for the many Haitians who have died or been sickened. … Amnesty International said Tuesday that the U.N. should properly investigate the ongoing epidemic’s impact and provide a plan to help victims who lost loved ones or who fell ill themselves after the disease raged through the country’s waterways and rapidly spread to all 10 administrative departments…” (McFadden, 10/13).
