Hosted by

But many Haitians complain they still aren't getting the help they need a month after the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that hit the island. How is aid being distributed? How is the international community dealing with orphans, after the arrest of ten missionaries accused of trying to smuggle children out of the country? With such widespread devastation, what kind of rebuilding does Haiti most need to build a more secure future?
