Nearly 4 years after quake, Haitians still in tents

Below is an interesting article looking into the situation in Haiti four years after the devastating magnitude 7 earthquake that struck in January, 2010.

"As the fourth anniversary of the disaster approaches, more than 170,000 Haitians are still living in makeshift housing, in extremely precarious conditions and sometimes facing eviction."

It does make you wonder where the money goes when we donate to large corporations who are raising money for such causes.

Very ****ing wrong! It's so much more than sad. It's just wrong. There's a chart I saw recently of where a few organizations donation funds go....it won't make you happy. I'll send you link Laron.
