First Topic – Haiti: What’s Happening A Year After the Earthquake?
The U.N. last week said Haiti's cholera outbreak appears to be waning overall, but high death rates from the virus in rural regions of the country remain a concern. According to figures released by the Haitian government, 231,070 cholera cases and 4,549 deaths from the disease have been reported since the outbreak first emerged in October. This on the heals of the devastating earthquake only a year ago. Catholic journalist Jeff Gardiner visited Haiti shortly after the anniversary of the earthquake and has this report for us.

Jim Cavnar of Cross International Catholic Outreach joins us to follow-up on Jeff Gardiner’s report to explain what the primary needs are in Haiti and to tell us what his organization has been able to accomplish with Ave Maria Radio listeners in the past year.
