Hurricane Matthew

So, as you all know Hurricane Matthew hs cased large scale devastations in some parts of the Caribbean. I am currently doing an internship with the United Nations in Panama as part of my studies, so I have the chance of participating the response and relief operations to this disaster at first hand.

As part of my work, I am collecting information about impacts, needs and current relief operations. Especially, Haiti has been hit pretty badly, and the international community has directed most relief operations to this country. Here, especially the risk of cholera outbreaks is quite concerning, so a lot of attention is being put on providing clean water to those affected.

We all hope that the situation in the affected countries will improve soon.
