ORIANI, Haiti (AP) â Only shriveled carrots and potatoes grow in Carole Joseph's small vegetable plot. The family's chickens are long gone. She sold her only tools to buy food, then the wooden bed she shared with her children. The family now sleeps on the floor of their shack.
All that's left to sell are the pots she uses to cook over a fire pit, when there's something to eat.

I wonder why the Clinton’s donate some of their millions to help get food stuffs to Haiti!
I read something somewhere, sometime ago that the Clinton’s had taken care of Haiti’s problems. I guess it was just another Clinton lie.
Send HillBillary .. they will “fix” it again ...
How is the DR, on the other side of the island, is relatively doing well with plenty of food and resorts (In fact they are the top tourist destination in the Caribbean) but Haiti has been a decrepit wasteland since the French left?
I don’t need to state the obvious.
50 million for me...1 million for thee.
Once they skimmed 90% off the top of the donations for Haiti , wasn’t much left.
we seem to be on the same page
It may be altruism.
Even some twisted folks have a soft spot for some groups of others.
I don’t know the particulars, but I hear it is very crooked down there.
I don’t know if some of it goes offshore... (if you catch my meaning)
I tend to ignore it. I get so sick and tired of one more scandal with them that nobody ever does anything about.
It’s so bad, even the Zombies are wandering around begging for a bite.
Folks, if you're reading this, you know what needs to happen.
If you can, please support the forum at this time. Thank you.
We’ve got Haitians here in America.
We should them back to help their countrymen.
Sending free food to Haiti put their farmers out of business. How can you compete with free food?
Yeah, she has some serious health issues and it’s definitely affecting her mental capacity ... let’s see Begala and Carville the Alien spin this
No excuse. Something is very wrong and it isn’t just the weather. There should not be malnutrition. Just think of the food that is wasted on cruise ships and resorts in neighboring areas.
Corruption pure and simple. And, where are the Clinton’s with all the money they have amassed?
Looks like everyone already nailed the clitons on their scam.
I truly think that this time -with her email felonies- she will finally be indicted! Especially now, since we all just learned today that many of her staff will be getting a subpoena to testify what they know about the emails. Whether this indictment will be before the general election in Nov, no one can tell.
Trump said that he would prosecute her.
His justice department isn’t going to stand by and watch this stuff like everyone else has.
From what I gather from this article, the drought down there has already put the farmers out of business. That photo of the land doesn't even show an active ant bed. :(
