In Haiti today, huge challenges remain just to meet basic needs of food, water, sanitation, shelter and security. AP reports a seven-day backlog of flights waiting to land with needed relief supplies, and while an estimated 2 million people need food, only 500,000 have any. Thousands of children in Haiti are struggling on their own without parents, vulnerable to kidnapping by child predators and traffickers, not to mention illness, injury and other threats. The fears of Haitians are taking shape as the imagined presence of loup-garou.
