Haiti emergency over?

Six weeks after the earthquake in Haiti, thousands are still starving and living in tent cities. Thousands of the dead still don't have their own graves. But the government there has declared the emergency over.

That decision is stopping even more people from getting the food, water and medicine they need; people who clearly don't agree that things are back to normal. Our Soledad O'Brien has the story from Port-au-Prince.

    The problem in Haiti is the corrupt government. The answer to helping the citizens in Haiti, is to make contributions in goods and services and cash directly to the people through approved church and service organizations. In all cases it is important to avoid contributions of any kind that the Haitian government can get their hands on or even attemp to tax the generosity of Americans or other countries that have and are continuing to help this devistated country. Much of the corruption that has taken place involves the Hatian government officials. Please do not mis-understand , as I believe in following the law, however, in this case the corruption is so great that any method used to avoid the Hatian government is wise and most effective in helping these people receive the contributions that the world is and will contiune to provide.
