Hurricane Sandy Victims in Haiti Forgotten

Haitians who have lost homes have received little assistance


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.
