Overnight Links for December 30th

Water Aid Nigeria is calling on the government to do a better job on providing clean water and sanitation services. From a This Day story found at All Africa we read that the push for sanitation is following a cholera outbreak from earlier this year. 

The Inter Press Service has this story about a Vitamin A supplementation program in India. UNICEF conducts the program that helps to give Vitamin A shots to children twice a year. 

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation has a story that says that the cholera outbreak in Haiti could hurt the rice harvest this year. Farmers fear that crops near rivers and creeks may be infected with cholera.
