More photos from Haiti


From my trip last week. They include a mother living with her children in a tent in the Central Plateau, an area far from the earthquake's epicenter, a modern and sparkling two-story supermarket that had me nervous riding in the elevator after I saw what the earthquake did to the Caribbean Supermarket, where hundreds died, a destroyed building that still lingers like a painful scar in the capital city of Port-au-Prince...

A little girl holding a sapling that is part of a reforestation project, a typical street scene in the
city, a child in a warehouse that now serves as a school after the school was destroyed, and a peaceful farming scene in an area where we will be helping farmers with irrigation during the
dry season.

Thanks for posting these, Bonnie. I was reading that 95% of the rubble from the earthquake has yet to be cleared. What a monumental task....

Norah, many private property owners can't afford to remove the rubble. It's expensive and many lacked insurance. Sigh...
