    Please, watch this short video:  Shocking Footage!

    Haiti:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IWrPXt7NJ4

    Do what you can, if all you can do is pray...be earnest. 
    Call your US Congressmen, call the media and ask them to stop ignoring the great needs of these people. Spread this video on social media, on a Hub or blog. 

    Help, if you care! 
    People are dying in need of medical help, food and water now.

    The International Governments / charities are doing very little to help.

      It is heartbreaking.   We need to really get serious about helping Haiti long term.  I'll share the video and request on my social media.  Thx.

        It is heartbreaking.  This is the charity Gary Heavin has been supporting for 5-6 years.  They are right there in Haiti.

        FERHA.org:  http://ferha.org/
           
        Mr. Heavin said that the UN has only secured $12 million for the Hurricane Matthew disaster in Haiti, for 1.4 million people, that's less than $10 per person. 

        The media isn't covering the story in Haiti, because the media is covering for Hillary, and people are dying.

      It's pretty much the same help the people of New Orleans got during Katrina. Nothing. Here it is 10 years later and they still have not gotten the money they were promised to rebuild. My heart goes out to the people of Haiti, but it goes to the American people first.. America has already given billions of dollars to the Haitian people.

      In 2010, after a devastating earthquake, $500 million was donated to the Red Cross for Haiti.  I never did see where it all went. It didn't look like the Haitian people ever saw it either. Was it stolen or squandered by the Haitian government or Haitian guerrillas? Was it stolen by the Red Cross? No one seems to know.

      The United Nations said that  $13.34 billion was earmarked for the crisis yet two years after the quake, less than half of that amount had actually been released, according to U.N. documents. What was done in Haiti with the money that was released?

      In 2013, the Haitians received $170.3 million and it was squandered on wasteful projects, i.e. a failed port and power plant,  instead of it going to the people of Haiti to help them rebuild and feed themselves.

      What is the point of donating even more money if:
      1)They never receive it and it again goes into another rich politicians or aid agency's pocket.
      2) The money they do get is squandered because of US and Haitian government officials.

      In 2015 the Clintons were in charge of  more relief money for the Haitians. Bill Clinton was the designated UN representative for aid to Haiti and Hillary was the  U. S. Secretary of State, in charge of U.S. aid allocated to Haiti.  The Haitians again are claiming they never received the funding.

      This past year, the Red Cross and the Salvation Army claim to have provided almost $11 billion in aid, with $4 billion coming from the United States. Yet again, the Haitians are claiming they have received very little of this aid money.

        You pose good questions.  I have Chelsea Clinton's report that she sent Bill and Hillary, dated Date: 08/31/2015

        "There is a context section at the bottom, which is longer than I would like, but I
        think it is important to articulate what I saw and whom I spoke with (and what I
        didn't see and whom I didn't meet) so that you understand my data set and its clear
        limitations. To say I was profoundly disturbed by what I saw - and didn't see -
        would be an understatement. The incompetence is mind numbing. Not incidentally,
        it rained twice while I was there. If we do not quickly change the organization,
        management, accountability and delivery paradigm on the ground, we could quite
        conceivably confront tens of thousands of children's deaths by diarrhea, dysentery,
        typhoid and other water-related diseases in the near future.
        Below are my major
        takeaways and a few nascent/early thoughts on what we (however we define we)
        could to do drive significant and incremental improvements on the ground in the
        near and longer term. As is often said, if I had more time - and less emotion - I
        would have written a shorter letter. I hope this mini-behemoth is not rife with
        grammatical errors or inadvertent gaps; I am sorry if either true.

        Please do not forward this in whole or in part attributed to me without asking me first - happy to be an invisible soldier. Mainly hope this is even marginally helpful.
        Thanks,
        Chelsea "

        You can read the disgusting report here:  https://foia.state.gov/searchapp/DOCUME … 774208.pdf

        Gary Heavin, is a billionaire, who has been helping in Haiti since the terrible earthquake, and now after Hurricane Matthew.  He is spending his own money. He is on the video in the OP.  Gary and his crew are flying eight missions a week to bring food, water and medical supplies to Haiti.  They is little else being done there by any organizations expect for H.E.R.O. that they can see.

        One of Heavin's cargo planes crash just the other day and the crew was killed. Its a very dangerous mission, you can see in the video where they have to land the planes.     

        Gary Heavin, knows first hand about the Clinton Foundation in Haiti.

        I believe that is the reason so much aid money never get to its intended source. Much of the nation's leaders and bureaucrats are absconding with money.

    Every time Mr. Heavin feeds a little child, he is reminded of how evil the Clintons are.

    Gary: The bible tells us that we would call evil good and good evil. The Clinton Foundation has stolen $2B.

    Obama did have military in Haiti, but they are pulling out today or tomorrow from what Gary says.  Over a million people are being left to die. Thank God, Mr. Heavin is doing all that he can...and he sure could use more hands-on help trying to save as many as he can.

      You cannot just blame the Clintons. As you know, because of reading the pdf file written by Chelsea, it goes beyond the Clintons. I know Trump wants to expand the military, if elected, and this is one place that really needs their help.

      The elected government officials and the Red Cross who have had control over all monies allocated and donated to the Haitian people need to be examed, prosecuted for fraud, at the very least, and forced to pay back all of the stolen money. Dig it out of their pockets and put it into the hands of the Haitian people who need it more than their greedy souls. If necessary, put UNICEF in charge as they seem to be the only organization that does what they say they are going to do.

      It is obvious to me that the Haitian government cannot be trusted to oversee operations or allocation of funds and the UN is a huge joke that is not very funny.

      I am torn with the American Red Cross. After the scandal of their organization withholding monies donated to the victims of hurricane Katrina, Irene, and Sandy I know longer want to donate to ANY victims through them. It should not be up to them where to allocate the funds donated to them. If I donate $500 to the victims of hurricane Irene in Schoharie, NY, that is where I want my $500 to go. If I donate $500 to the victims in Haiti, that is where I want my donation to go and that is how their accounts should be set up. Non-profits should not be allowed to hold monies to earn interest as they are NON-profit and not FOR-profit. They should, by law, allocate the funds per the request of the donator.

      More volunteers are needed in these NON-profit organizations to keep the administration expenses under control. Unfortunately, because of the high wages paid in these administration offices, and the high cost of mahogany desks in offices (yes, the offices of the United Way are gorgeous with mahogeny desks) I have read that only 10% of my donations go to the victims and 90% goes to administration "expenses". I remember in the 1950s and 1960s when it was the other way around. The victims received 90% and the admin received 10%.

      I quit giving to the United Way for the same reason. They keep 90% and only give 10%. And that is a fact, not just a guesstimate.

      These days I only give money directly to the organization I want to have it. When I give to Planned Parenthood, I give it to them directly. I drove to Schoharie to donate funds there as neither FEMA nor the Red Cross came through as expected. Insurance companies still are not paying home owners to any of the flood victims; including those who have been paying for flood insurance for years.

      I don't know who is NOT on the bandwagon of skimming donations anymore, and seriously, until it is sorted out, I don't see the point of donating to fill the pockets of someone who makes far more money than I do since and  since the victims never get it.
      Is UNICEF the answers for overseas donations? Hard to tell since they are affiliated with the UN. When Eleanor Roosevelt first began the organization in 1946 it did a lot of good and has done so for years, but are they still. According to Chelsea's pdf report, they are but are underfunded. It makes me wonder again. Why isn't the UN allocating any of the Haitian funds to UNICEF?

      Thanks for letting me vent, but I have wasted too much time doing so. Nothing will change until people as a whole start taking responsibility for their actions, no matter how small their actions may seem to be.

      Parents need to hold their children responsible and teach them there are always consequences for their actions, both negative and positive, dependant on what their actions may be.

        On this latest video from Haiti today some charities were posted that are good to make a donation to, they are helping. 

        Makeshift Hospitals Bring Hope to Haiti
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KMXavUfLCQ

        These people are helping directly in Haiti:
        Haiti Health Foundation .org   
        Project Medi Share .org
        Caris Foundation .org
        Operation Blessing International ob.org

        "Is UNICEF the answers for overseas donations?"
        "Why isn't the UN allocating any of the Haitian funds to UNICEF?"

        I wouldn't donate to UNICEF. 

        "Thanks for letting me vent, but I have wasted too much time doing so. Nothing will change until people as a whole start taking responsibility for their actions, no matter how small their actions may seem to be."

        I enjoyed reading your post. Its good to vent. You are not wasting my time. Often things change one person at a time. I hope some of the MSM outlets will go to Haiti and report on the dire needs.
