Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

Haiti has always been a country stricken with poverty, and to have such a devastating earthquake hit them in 2010 was detrimental to any plans they had to improve the country. The earthquake negatively contributed to the very same water system the Haitian government was trying to improve. The massive 7.0 earthquake broke some of the water channels, which ultimately lead to the growth of many Cholera colonies in the pipes. This all led to the Cholera outbreak in October 2010. More recently, Haiti has been in a slightly better state, but not well enough for the people to live comfortably. As many search for a resolution, there is one idea that has not crossed many minds. This short report will discuss the best option for rebuilding and restructuring for Haiti, and what the people need to do to get to that point.
