Clean Water and Common Sense – Dr John Caroll, Dispatches from #Haiti – Journal Star – Peoria, IL
I would ask how $2.2 billion dollars is “prohibitive” if it means improved water and sanitation for 10 million people? Cleaning up the water could prevent many of the deadly water born diseases including #cholera.
The #UN occupation of Haiti since 2004 costs 2 million dollars per day. If we did the math and looked at the morbidity and mortality caused from dirty water and poor sanitation, would we not have saved many more Haitian lives during the last 10 years if we would have invested in Haiti’s infrastructure and improved the water and sanitation?
