Congress Says UN not Fulfilling Hispaniola Initiative

Congresswoman Waters sent UN Secretary General, Ki-moon, a letter regarding UN's response to Haiti's cholera epidemic.

Congress is disappointed UN has spent only $23.5 million dollars of the $2.2 billion Hispaniola Initiative requirement.

Ki-moon claimed UN has provided $140 million-plus dollars for cholera victims. He says cholera cases have lowered 90%, with the death toll at 1%.

Ki-moon reminded Congress UN bears no responsibility for compensating victims. A clause protects them from reimbursement lawsuits.
