Forever Waiting

A month after Hurricane Matthew blew through Haiti causing at least 546 deaths, 800,000 residents are in desperate need of food, and the fight for scarce resources is undermining order, reports The Washington Post.
 
Still recovering from the 2010 earthquake, citizens have become wholly dependent on international aid to stave off famine and rebuild their nation. But several remote mountain villages may not see emergency aid until the end of November. The UN has raised only 1/3 of the funding it needs to help Haiti through the next 3 months, and fears of disease outbreaks are on the rise.
