Compassion USA: Everything in Haiti's 'Not Fine'

Ad Feedback

More than two years have passed since a 7.0-magnitude earthquake shook the island nation of Haiti and shattered so many hopes and dreams.

Today, Mark Hanlon, senior vice president of Compassion International USA, noted the country is still struggling to rebuild.

"Everything in Haiti is not fine," he wrote in a Huffington Post op-ed. "Dig a little deeper and you discover that the tent cities in the middle of Port-au-Prince have merely moved."

"The government gave relief money that flowed in from around the world to Haitians in order to move somewhere else," Hanlon added.

"They took the money and simply pitched their tents or built shacks on the same type of steep hillsides that proved to be death-slopes during the earthquake," he said.

Hanlon talked more about the situation in Haiti and why the tiny nation continues to struggle on the CBN News Channel's Morning News, Sept. 18.
