Haitian Cholera Victims Await U.N. Compensation Without Guarantee

Miami Herald: Anger and angst in Haiti as cholera victims wait for U.N. compensation
“…The United Nations, which after years of denial finally acknowledged its role in the outbreak in August, has pledged $400 million to treat cholera victims and improve sanitation and water infrastructure in Haiti, while also providing ‘material assistance and support’ to those most severely affected. But it’s unclear how long Haitians will have to wait, and if compensation is offered, what it might involve…” (Charles, 7/27).
