Opinion | As Haiti sinks into pandemonium, the international community is silent
Washington PostAug 06, 2022Aug 06, 2022
This cholera outbreak is another consequence of the complex humanitarian crisis in Haiti since the killing of President Jovenal Moïse in 2021. Though the country has drifted into chaos, the international community remains silent and indifferent to Haiti's suffering. It's time for a robust international intervention to restore order and provide crucial aid.
While the international community must assist Haiti in addressing the humanitarian crisis - including the latest cholera outbreak - global powers should resist temptations to intervene strongly in Haitian affairs. Yes, Port-au-Prince needs help, but it can only achieve long-term political stability if Haitians are allowed to create a political system on their terms.
