Situation in Haiti

20-10-2016 07:00

A hurricane hits Haiti. One thousand people die. Around 1.4 million people need help. Their situation is very bad.

The UN sends Haiti food. The boss of the UN visits Haiti. He sees that people attack the food trucks. They take the food.

He does not like this. He says this in a speech. He also says that more help is coming. He says that he wants to stop cholera.

Difficult words: UN (the United Nations – an organisation which helps countries), speech (when you officially talk to people and the media), cholera (a very bad type of illness).
