Widespread pandemic since its decolonization. Decolonized and left with exhausted resources and lack of model government; built by descendants of slaves. Islands are subject to hurricane seasons, earthquakes, increasing floods, drought and soil erosion– increasing ferocity due to climate change. The international extreme poverty line is -$1.90/day. Haiti’s average public lives on $3/day of 10.8 million; the average Jamaican lives on about $13 per day of 2.88 million. Within these states there are millions actually living below the poverty line.
