Considering the starting point after the quake, a lot of progress has been made. A lot remains to be done, but the power is sort of on, wells are being opened, the streets are mostly cleared of rubble, the 300,000 bodies have been removed (that took more time than you think), the port is open, the airport is functional, some manufacturing is re-opening, services are becoming more available, there is fuel, there is food, there is rebuilding of homes, though that's going pretty slowly.

In short, don't give up on Haiti just when they need you the most. Right now, the biggest challenge is getting those million people out of tent cities or ad-hoc housing and back into something more substantial. That won't happen overnight and it won't be cheap.

250 people died from bad water in Haiti - get a grip! That many died in Costa Rica for the same reason and you didn't see that on CNN

The sad thing is that much of the money that was donated has not been put into Haiti and then you have corrupt people as well involved in this mess. Smh
