Baseball In a Time of Cholera

The cholera epidemic in Haiti was one of the worst public health outbreaks to plague an already devastated nation. After the catastrophic earthquake that took place on January 12, 2010, upwards of 7,490 people have died and 586,000 people have fallen ill to cholera. To make matters worse, UN peacekeepers from Nepal were implicated as the source of the outbreak. This must-see short documentary covers the aftermath of the outbreak as well as one boy’s personal story to keep hope alive for his family and community through baseball.
