'Poorest Of The Poor' Are Worst Hit by Hurricane Matthew

2016-10-06 16:44:511 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Rescue workers in Haiti warned Thursday that the death toll from Hurricane Matthew could rise as they worked to establish the full extent of the damage.
"The most concerning thing is we really don't have a full picture. We don't have all the information we need in order to see how bad it is," said Christy Delafield, a communications officer with Mercy Corps, a global humanitarian aid agency. Dave Brodsky, president of Chanje Movement, a California-based church partnership that has been working in Haiti since the 2010 earthquake, said the "poorest of the poor" have been worst hit by flooding.
"A lot of the homes here are just leveled with layers of mud and there are sanitation issues because the standing water is mixing with human waste and animal waste," he said, adding "About 10% of the homes have been destroyed in Croix-des-Bouquets and about 50% damaged. The rain and the mud caused them to collapse."
He said the homeless are seeking shelter with friends and families.
