Sarah Palin Leaves Country to Help the Suffering in Haiti
Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham returned to Haiti today to survey our work with cholera patients, hand deliver Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts to hurting children, and meet with staff.
Samaritan’s Purse teams have been working in Haiti since the country was devastated by a deadly earthquake in January. Still struggling to recover from the quake, the Haitian people have more recently suffered from the growing cholera epidemic that has already claimed more than 2,000 lives and from the hurricane that pummeled the island nation in November.
“I don’t know of any people in recent years who have suffered more, and in such a short period of time than the people of this small country—with an earthquake, a hurricane, and now a cholera epidemic,” Graham said.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Greta Van Susteren of Fox News are accompanying Graham on the trip.

Remember the promises from Barry and Moochelle to the Haitians that they wouldn’t be forgotten? Not a word from either on the cholera crisis, which was likely brought there by the UN Peacekeepers. CDC is over there, but playing down the UN link to the epidemic.
