Hurricane Sandy, the deadly storm that slammed into New York and New Jersey in October, tore through the Caribbean long before reaching America — and in Haiti, many still await help.
Flooding from Sandy killed 54 people and left thousands homeless in Haiti, another woe for a country still struggling to recover from a 2010 earthquake that left more than 200,000 dead.
A cholera epidemic that broke out afterwards has since killed around 7,600 people but even its effect worsened with the recent rains — 44 deaths were reported in the past month, according to Haiti’s Ministry for Public Health.
