Gmail - Humanity First November Update It is now 10 months since the devastating earthquake struck Haiti which claimed over 300,000 lives. During this period various aid agencies including Humanity First teams have been very active but have struggled to keep the population health and fed. More than 1.3 million people live in camps and are vulnerable to hurricanes, storms and diseases. Recently an outbreak of cholera has claimed more than 600 lives and infected more than 7,000 people. Fortunately Haiti was spared a direct strike by Hurricane Tomas in November however the west of the city has suffered heavy flooding, landslides, further structural destruction and loss of crops. Increasing cases of cholera with Salmonella are being seen following the rains.
