the UN [#Haiti] Country Team is almost two months late and $9.8 million short in dealing with Haiti’s #cholera. And of course the ineptitude of the #UN and its reliance on begging bowls will result in “longer or more severe outbreaks.”

The US government, which is behind most of Haiti’s sorrows, spends $604.5 billion yearly on military defence. That’s $1.656 billion daily. By redirecting three or four days’ such spending, the US could provide safe drinking water and sanitation for everyone in Haiti.
