Easily Forgotten

Remember that Haiti earthquake disaster?

Nine months after the quake, over a million people are still homeless.

Only 2 percent of the rubble has been removed.

Only 13,000 temporary shelters have been constructed.

Not a single cent of the US aid pledged for rebuilding has arrived in Haiti.(In the last few days the US pledged it would put up 10% of the billion dollars in reconstruction aid promised.)

Only 15 percent of the aid pledged by countries and organizations around the world has reached the country so far.

A million Haitians are slowly dying from starvation, illness, lack of security and neglect. Nine months after the quake.
