Ban proposes UN fund to help Haitian cholera victims
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has proposed a $400 million cholera response package to assist Haitians who contracted cholera due to UN peacekeepers in the country. "We want to do this because we think it's the right thing to do for the Haitian people, but frankly speaking, it's the right thing to do for the United Nations," said Jan Eliasson, the UN deputy secretary-general.
