Hurricanes heighten Haitian food crisis

Earthquakes, hurricanes, poverty and hunger - it seems that Haiti comes in for more than its fair share of disaster. Hurricanes Isaac and Sandy have destroyed an already weak harvest, leading to a food shortage. Prices have rocketed, as farmers are unable to cultivate enough crops to feed even themselves and their families. Help from the international community will be critical over the coming months if Haitians are to be prevented from starving altogether.
