Journalism: Haiti `10: Deathward wait/
Within Haitian capital's largest functioning hospital are two rodent infested rooms, literally lit by only bystreet lights, known to local as the "Death Ward" . Here surviving patients of the earthquake that stuck Port-au-Prince on January 12, 2010 are left, sometimes alone, and condemned to face their own fatality.
L'Hopital General is the largest hospital in Haiti, currently housing over 3,500 patients seeking treatment within its compound walls. Within this complex is a ward rarely visited by doctors or foreign relief volunteers known to as the "Catacombs" due to the dim lighting and the overbearing humidity. Many of the patients here suffer from chronic cases of malaria, dementia or severe cases of pulmonary tuberculosis due to living conditions in Haiti since the earthquake on January 12th, 2010 that has claimed more than 250000 lives.
