Situation in Haiti – level 2

Situation in Haiti – level 2

20-10-2016 07:00

Hurricane Matthew destroyed Haiti earlier in October. Around 1,000 people died and 1.4 million people needed humanitarian help.

The UN Secretary General visited Haiti. He saw looting of food trucks. The situation in Haiti is very bad and the people are desperate.

The Secretary General gave a speech. He talked about the looting and said that he does not like it. He promised to send more help. He wants to stop a cholera epidemic before it happens.

Difficult words: Secretary General (a title given to the most important administrator of some organisations), loot (steal), desperate (their situation is so bad that they will do anything), epidemic (when many people get sick from the same illness at the same time).
