Matthew's Aftermath

Hurricane Matthew left a broad tableau of devastation in Haiti, making old problems worse for those living in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
The death toll is surging in the aftermath of the worst natural disaster to strike the nation since the earthquake of 2010.
Aid groups fear cholera and the country’s future in terms of food security. “Most of the crops are gone. Many of the farm fields are like landfills. They’re full of trash, seawater, gravel and other debris,” said Hervil Cherubin, country director in Haiti for Heifer International.
