DUBUISSON, HAITI - OCTOBER 30: People participate in the distribution of cholera protection kits by a French non-governmental organization (NGO) October 30, 2010 in Dubuisson, Haiti. The NGO, Acted, gave a demonstration on sanitary precautions and distributed water purification kits to residents in the community which has witnessed numerous cases of cholera. Haiti, one of the poorest nations in the Western Hemisphere, has been further unsettled by an outbreak of cholera which has so far killed over 300 people as of Friday. The epidemic has affected the central Artibonite and Central Plateau regions. While authorities believe the outbreak is contained, they also believe it has not yet peaked. 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. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images) less
