A malnourished orphan lays in a crib at a hospital in Limbe, Haiti, May 23, 2011. The United Nations Children’s Fund estimated in 2007 that there were roughly 380,000 orphans in Haiti, a number which has since grown because of several earthquakes and diseases that have ravaged the country. Haiti’s lack of sanitation service, hot water or trash collection has increased the spread of infectious diseases through personal contact and unclean water. Heavy rains in Haiti for the past four weeks have also caused widespread flooding and mudslides, which contributed to the spread of Cholera.
