Food For The Poor is providing lifesaving medical supplies to combat a growing number of cholera cases in Haiti. The waterborne illness has caused at least 35 deaths, with more than 600 suspected or confirmed cases in the area surrounding Port-au-Prince, according to the latest figures from the Pan American Health Organization. On Thursday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, President/CEO of FFTP, Ed Raine joins us to give an update on the dire situation in Haiti. “The country is basically locked down right now. There is nothing that is functioning as normal in Haiti right now. They’re frankly dealing with issues of life and death survival."
