    Hello, I am looking for my mother Jacquiline Ballon and my sister Lovely. My father took me away from my mother when I was three years old. I grew up believing from him that my mother abandoned me. Since then I have Breifly seen them twice. My father refuses to give me any information that would allow me to get into contact with them. Since the birth of my daughter last year I have desperatly wanted to talk to them. The last area that I have known them to be living in is Carrefour. So if anyone have any information you can please call me at 561-306-8946 or 561-909-5469 I would really appreciate any information. Thank You.

    It's time to look at sanitary conditions in Port au Prince. That is the new and ominous second phase of the catastrophe. Without running water, there cannot be any working sewage system, so that leaves the story no one will report yet. But the implications are serious–is the city becoming an outdoor latrine? The risk of cholera and other diseases is now in play–and it is high time for Gupta and CNN to focus on this second phase of the catastrophe–not to report on it AFTER it's happened but BEFORE it has, and help prevent it.

    The use of helicopters to deliver supplies can provide immediate help. However, you cannot just drop supplies and leave. We have already seen that those "people" that are strong, maybe armed, will just take whatever is dropped & then use it to gain power or make money! So, my answer would be to drop troops into an LZ prior to the supply drop, establish some control & organization to make sure ALL get something!
    And YES, have orders to "shoot to kill" those that would try to benefit from their OWN people's suffering!

    why can they dr op emergency supplies, into certain hard to get to areas, where are the tents, put up some emergency housing for these people to sleep at night, get some blankets and sanitary napkin, to the females, that need to have these supplies, ASAP. Let put up the tents, in the park areas, so at least they could have a place to sleep, while things are being set up. lets get areas up for people to go and eat, and get warm blankets and pampers for the children. The money is pouring in, WHERE AND WHEN, will it get to the people. You are doing a good job, but we can do better and faster! As you know, time is of essence.

    Ms. Coleman... with all due respect, there are over 9 million people there. Not all could possibly be handed supplies one at a time.

    What I don't understand, is why are we not just dropping in basic supplies (food, water, etc.) to different areas of the country until an organized effort to give substainsiated help is formed?

    These people need help NOW! They don't need to get in line.

    come on guys, give us some fresh reporting, all you're doing right now is showing scenes over and over again and while impressive it is not new news, need to get with these other countires/outfits, want to see the food and water and a plan, heavy equipment, find these poor people and give them hope...anderson is right stupid treatment that cannot be really very effective...come on, get into today';s story, please!!!!

    CNN is doing a fantastic job reporting on Haiti.

    I have an idea. Since it difficult to use the roads, why not galvalnize citizens to come to the airport and get supplies, with the help of the military, and take them to the people. This is something that could be explored. I have seen people helping each other because they don't expect the government to help them. I don't know if anybody has discussed this, but this could be part of the solution. It certainly couldn't hurt. Every minute counts.

    Thank you for your excellent reporting. This is why CNN is #1 in the world!
