Bryn Mooser, RYOT, Los Angeles, CA
The message is simple: Over 500,000 Haitians have been infected with cholera and over 7,000 have died from the disease since October 2010. Yet, Haiti is still left without sufficient sanitation and water infrastructure or reparations for the more than half a million victims of the cholera outbreak. This film is a powerful insight into the tragedy and scandal of Haiti's cholera epidemic through the eyes of a young baseball player. Please share this story.
