    My two god sons were living in Haiti with their parents and I have just been informed that their parents have pasted away. Is there anyway I could have them sent to me in the US or can I come and get them?

    It seems to be that UN are first rescuing and giving to their people, the same with some charities while some leave the country in the moment of greater need while the politicians talk and parade themselves and nothing gets to the needy, learn from the bolivians they were offering meals and the spanish, australians and brazilian digging people out while the US keeps on asking for more money but not too much work for the local poor and needy of
    There are orphanage collapsed with children under the rubble but no one with the means to get them out or to feed the ones left outside, it is not as usual going to 'control' the country

    Over and Over CNN showed a young boy sitting naked in a Haiti street. His knees drawn up to his chin. Where is this child and why didn't some CNN representative taking pictures provide aide to this child? Humanitarian services were evident throughout Cnn's photo shots except for this child – WHY?

    What happened to the MEDICAL SHIP the UNITED STATES was sending to Haiti????
    Dr. S. Gupta stated that they were told to pack up and leave the site. I somehow thought the military presence was there. This is the third day of the tragic, why are not there more organization?
    Where is the food and water? Are the people not getting the supplies. What is the problem? These people are in need of help! Please help them!!!! I am joining the American Red Cross as I did with Katrina!! I am also giving financially.

    I have cried many tears over these last few days and although the devastion is heart breaking it is the answer to the question of Why here in such a needy place . Over and over as people are being pulled out , the prayers are what they say saved them. Asked how the little boy survived , alone in the dark by himself for the two days he was buried as he was, It was God she said. We think cruel , they think Thank you I am alive and truth be told there lives are going to change from this moment on for the better as my opinion is the world around them crumbles with having to point our finger at someone, even God. It's funny too in America in all speeches from all mediums, how often do you hear thanks to god for there fortunes.
    I pray with them.
    They are am amazing people.rea

    In re failing efforts to get supplies and equipment onshore – does the US military not have the capability of landing heavy equipment and large containers on beach fronts? Surely they have done so many times in the past for military purposes. Why not now in Haiti?

    At a time when Haiti needs every Doctor & nurse on this earth, why is your CNN's Doctor Gupta spending his time interviewing the President of the country & sending reports that any other CNN reporter can do ?
    Is this a time to make a name for himself reporting or bandaging a baby's head on camera that any nurse can do, or should he be in an operating room helping the real injured and the people in need for real medical help ?

    Are there people on the ground doing photographic documentation of the deceased? (With name & relevant info if possible).
    CNN is now reporting that there are now bodies being piled up and dumped.
    If not, who do I contact to get a volunteer few together to go down to begin this.
    I thought that this was a lesson we learned from the tsunami aftermath, to help the population to possibly identify the missing.

    First, I'd like to know why Haiti is in such a mess with no building codes to speak of and no emergency facilities set up for this kind of thing. It's a sad thing when disasters like these have to bring attention to the living conditions and lack of proper leadership of a people. Also, why hasn't the Haitian government been taking better care of it's people? My heart aches for the people of such a country as Haiti. Help is on the way, my friends.

    Could the United Staes use drone aircraft to locate survivors in remote areas that need immediate attention and aid?

    I watch CNN off and on about seven hours a day. (The advantage of having your own business) But, because of this, I have become a fan of CNN correspondents.

    My question is this: How are they surving in Haiti? Do they have food, places to sleep, etc.
