Haitian Relief Efforts Fall Short

A Haitian crisis may be coming which will test the resolve of foreign donors, according to relief workers. While money has poured into the earthquake-devastated country, the Haitian government is unable to govern many parts of the country. While American troops have set up a food distribution network, 75% of Haitian schools in Port-au-Prince have been destroyed and none of them are operating. The earthquake caused enough damage “to fill the Superdome five times,” according to U.S. Army Colonel Rick Kaiser, the head of the food distribution network. The good news is that after three weeks, the U.N. World Food Programme has finally been able to deliver rice to the countryside. Relief workers hope that once the crisis becomes back page news, it will not be forgotten.
