A Note from Georgianne Nienaber:

I first met Leah on Facebook, where we were comparing notes about the devastating cholera epidemic in Haiti. The latest statistics, which are surely lagging behind real numbers, show a death rate of 6 percent, which is twice the world average for cholera deaths. We are now at 16,799 victims and 1034 deaths. The statistics mean nothing and Leah's photos capture the pain and agony of the victims without being sensational. That is what I like about her---her sensitivity to the Haitian people. Leah is working for free! The mainstream is not buying her photos yet, but I hope the OEN community supports her and her work there. She has been a great help to me, especially since I have been back in Florida, always willing to check a fact or situation.
