Making a difference in Haiti


Soon after the earthquake hit in Haiti, ChrisMorrow wanted to do whatever she could to help, starting with pitching in on CNN iReport’s Haiti database. She began following the progress of the local San Diego Rescue Task Force who were determined to deliver as much aid as possible to the Haitian people. This led to her getting the opportunity to fly to Haiti and iReport from there for a week.


While staying in Sean Penn’s camp, ChrisMorrow toured remote hospitals, tent cities and scenes of complete devastation, two weeks out from the quake.


All of this moved her in a big way: In a live interview, she told HLN’s Richelle Carey, “I find myself in tears most of the time.”


CNN’s Errol Barnett spoke with ChrisMorrow while she was in Haiti as well. Check out the interview here, and if you have a story from the aftermath of the quake, share your iReport.

You are so young to go back and make difference there. my advice is to study hard and be successful here in Canada and have good career and then enough money .. so you can go and build schools there.

Free the missionaries - or show them how to do it right - don't imprison those who came to help - the Haitian lawyer showed a greed that leads to no help for Haitians.

"Himalaya of Corpses"

This himalaya sprang up just in 35 second

over the pearl of Caraibbes, where the tears

and cries were in the air all over the world,

regarding Ispagnola which always meant the land

of hills.

Haiti used to represent the Caraibbean memories,

built in the 16th century, three hundred years ago.

As the first independent colored nation, they brought

help for freedom to so many neighbours around

the Central and North America, where their blood

and strategy have made the difference;

Ispagnola used to be the pearl of Caraibbes,

then it has turned into a Himalaya of corpses,

where the tears and cries have been heard all

over the world as fast as Ispagnola has fallen 

just in 35 seconds like the big-bang of the 21st

century, touching the hearts of even those who

used to speculate on the mother nature. Is it a

punishment or a correction? Either one, it might be

a message for the fellow observers or neighbours. 

Thank you all for helping Haiti by heart and sincerity!

I really do not know in what language to be grateful towards all the great-hearted people who are still helping Haiti! On the other hand, I would personally suggest to the U.S and other Governments, as well as the concerned Groups, to keep eyes on Mr. Rene Preval until he leaves office, because he may have in mind to pass the power to another incapable face of his lasting administration then we, Haitin citizens are deeply exhausted of the alternative turms that he's spending on the hope of this unfortunate nation. No one can deny that this momentum requires a serious team for Haiti, not even a Government, but some real patriotists shall hoist Haitian's flag to a generation!!!

I am angry - - no, outraged. The US assists all of these countries when a disaster occurs, yet none assist us. Our nation's unemployment is running out because our government says we have no funds, yet they find billions to send to Haiti. Our people are homeless, unemployed, hungry, losing their homes - - who is helping us. Now with the disaster in Chili, if our government and people assist them also, I will be even more angry. The citizens of the US should band together and say "HELP BEGINS AT HOME". How can the government find money for other countries and even have the audacity to ask the American public to donate, when the American public has no job, no home, no money, no food, etc. Why is no one helping America - - not even the American people nor the American government? I refuse to help another country until someone begins helping us. I do my part, but what is government doing? The US is bankrupt, so they say, yet the government finds all this money to send to another country... Where did they get it and what else have they taken away from Americans to send it? It is time the American public gets angry and demands that our elected officials begin their assistance at home. What is it going to take for Americans to begin worrying about and helping their fellow Americans? It is insanity to take money and send it to another country when the need is so great within our own borders.

It is all over the news for the coverage of Hawaii tsunami but how about the pacific islands like Johnston Island Truk all of the Micronesian Islands.  A lot of them do not have high ground to go to.

I agree with kwmad. Why is it that our Government can seem to come up with millions of money to help other countries when this country is so far in debt? Why not just give the money back to the people of this country that pay it to the Government and let them do what they want with the money? Discount Fragrances
