'Haiti - The Present Conditions on the Ground - A Journalist's Report'
April 12, 2010
Hosted by David Gibbons
Andy Levin joins David Gibbons in this profound program on Haiti, a country in which he has spent many years covering the affairs of a torn nation as a writer and photographer. In recent articles he quotes “Some twenty of the estimated three hundred camps are in grave danger from flood waters as they are located on or at the bottom of steep hills. The danger is greatest is said to be “red” camps, a UN designation for those camps most at risk for flooding. The largest of the “red” camps is the so-called “golf course” camp, formerly secured by the American 86th Airbone, on the grounds of the Petionville Club, a private golf course that is now home to an estimated 60,000 Haitians. The essential services at the camp are housed in the ravine at the bottom of the hill, the area most likely to be over-run by water streaming down the slope of the golf course, which, like much of Haiti, has been largely stripped of its trees, this time by the refugees themselves. It is thought that here heavy rains could kill 5,000 people.”
