Cholera is surging in Haiti after Hurricane Matthew fouled wells, flooded rivers and latrines and forced survivors to drink contaminated storm water – even in regions that have received some deliveries of emergency aid.

Haiti has been forgotten by the world. It was a disaster on an almost unprecedented scale. And, for a country already wracked by poverty with so many institutional weaknesses, it was a complete catastrophe. Looking at such suffering, it is perhaps easy to lose all hope for the country. I hope that the government wiill take responsibility for those who have lost almost everything but their resilience and dignity…

Would someone from the NYT explain why a photograph embedded in this article includes a naked child?"Families trying to leave Rendel must deal with the river, which bends so often that it has nine crossings." Credit Meridith Kohut for The New York Times. Would the NYT publish a photograph of a naked white child in the flooded streets of NC?

This is a awful shame. Why does the worst things that can happen, happen to the people of Haiti. How is the humanitarian effort this time around?

a 'twist of the knife' from mother nature. A big hurricane, and then a cholera outbreak. These people don't deserve this. :(

This island should be condemned as uninhabitable.

I wonder how long before they can improve their conditions and make the water sanitary again.

I made a donation to the Red Cross for relief efforts.

It will be at least a few years before everything is back in place. They have to wait for aid money to be raised and brought over. Hopefully they can stay disaster free for a few years.

You should have sent it directly to someone in need. Red cross has been known to do shady business also.

The entire world needs to help this country out. We should be taking in refugees from this country not war countries who chose to fight.
