JURVE, HAITI - OCTOBER 26: In this handout image provided by the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), MINUSTAH's Uruguayan Battalion provides security as people wait in line to receive bottled water from Jeunesse, a mission in a small village on the Artibonite River, the suspected source of the Cholera epidemic, October 26, 2010 in Jurve, Haiti. Haiti, one of the poorest nations in the Western Hemisphere, has been further unsettled by an outbreak of cholera which has so far killed nearly 300 people as of Tuesday. The epidemic has affected the central Artibonite and Central Plateau regions with 3,612 cases so far on record. While authorities believe the outbreak is contained, there is fear that the deadly diarrheal disease could migrate to the sprawling camps for the hundreds of thousands of Haitians displaced by the earthquake.
