#4351: Re: Laleau queries WHO listing
Would you do me and the List the favor of listing the 5 or so countries
immediately preceding and following Haiti in this listing, just to give us
some idea of the company in which Haiti finds herself? And who is worse than
Haiti, going on down to Sierra Leone?
I have a coworker who is an international AIDs consultant who is just about
recovered from the emotional impact of his stay in Sierra Leone... he said
the rebels are amputating hands and legs as a way of forcing people to join
them, and that the country is full of young amputees... he described other
horrors that have totally devastated the social fabric... He also spent time
in Haiti (but before 1990, I think) and as soon as I pick his brain about his
impressions there (compared with the other 5-10 countries like Haiti) I will
let you know what he says.
