"The European Commission has defended its humanitarian action in Haiti, where an outbreak of cholera has killed at least 250 people following an earthquake in January that devastated the country's capital Port-au-Prince. Asked by EurActiv to comment, Ferran Tarradellas, spokesperson for EU Humanitarian Aid Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva, defended the Commission's action. The EU is working with partners on the ground, in particular the Spanish Red Cross, the French Red Cross, Action Contre la Faim and others, he said."
