    Give me a break with that shithole of Haiti....

    Vacation in Haiti. It is the number one destination for people who want to fake their own death. A filthy ragged wretch blows white powder into your face and you wake up in a coffin 4 days later. The wretch and his companions then dig you up just in time to pick up your new identity and avoid child support payment to your ex-wife.

    I have my holiday booked!

    i feel ashamed for people i don't know ('fremdschämen' a term in german meaning:to be ashamed of actions by un/-known others!) & i couldn't have said it better!
    cheers, for no fears of b*ll*cking!i hope they're disgusted by their own
    ignorance & 'choke' on an epiphany,whilst an empty-stomached-haitian-kid, kicks sense into their empty heads(metaphorically!)!

    A good friend of mine knows 2 handicapped Haitian teenagers that are being sent back to Haiti next week. Long story short, funding ran out for their care here since donations have fallen recently (If its no longer on the news its no longer worth donating to, it seems).

    I despair thinking of what their fate will be in Haiti as handicap teenagers.

    Real people, real circumstances, real tragedy.

    Those who made such terrible comments- you are absolutely ignorant, and have no heart... to speak from a place where you are handed everything on a plate, you should at least not look down on others. Do the rest of the viewers a favour and bite your tongue next time. If you don't have anything good to say, then don't say anything at all. That way, you save the rest of us the feelings of shame and disgust, and will also benefit you.

    Can someone tell me where the money raised globally went to? What was 1.4 billion smackers spent on?

  11. Stacy Jones-Erickson

    "Where's your humanity?" Good question. Here's one for you. Where's your brain?

    Always amazes me when I see people like these, such a small setup and they make a huge difference to so many people's lives. If they can achieve this, why don't the bigger charities manage to do more, or do we just not get to see the results? Did anyone watch Cambodia Orphans before this? I expect the answer is in there somewhere. These guys do everything themselves, manage the money and have a relatively small target. I suspect the bigger the charity the less control it has down the line. Maybe it's just that money is like butter, the further you spread it the less you have. Made me think, if I were to win the lottery how would I decide who to help? Would I really want to give it Oxfam or the like or would it be better to give to smaller groups. And even where I live there are whole families living in bed and breakfasts, should I help them first? Are they as in need ? How do you decide what is a worthy cause ? Where do you start? Like the lady said I guess, one person at a time. scraps make quilts :)

    On some level it hurts us western people to see this, consciously and subconsciously. Unless you're a sociopath.

  17. oompaul

    So, it hurts "us western people". I agree completely. This sort of sentiment is on the whole limited to westerners. Just have a look at who rushes in first to help out when disasters strike - Chinese? Japanese? Africans? Jews? Does that mean non-westerners are sociopaths? According to you it would seem they are.

    Re-zoning the island next to Haiti.

    I recall a lecture on Keen Talks, in Haiti, about 4 hours after the tsunami they were cutting and dividing the land up among major corporations and resort developers.

  20. Martin Stoel

    The battleships you see in the beginning (2:21) are not French but Dutch ;

    Probably one American Documentary ;)

  21. oQ

    I always said the best way to give is to give, les yeux dans les main dans la main, it's direct and you know where the time and money goes, plus you get the journey.

  23. Sherman

    so many rich people with their monies increasing every minute in the banks of the world, yet these people must live in such a destitute. it's not even correct to call those who can help and they don't, Animals because even animals care for each other. the population of this planet needs to be annihilated and then ... may be ... a better man with no such a disease as GREED start life on it again.

  24. Gloria Newton

    God bless Dr.Cutler ,Rick Klassen
    and his associates.

  25. Mr_Martinez

    The many millions raised in the US only 3% made it to Haiti, the rest was pocketed by the contracting companies that were supposed to help

  26. Jess

    Haiti has a special place in my heart, I sponsor through his hands for Haiti, an amazing organization bringing education to children. God bless Dr Cutler, he is amazing! Its so sad that people only care about themselves and are wrapped up in consumption while children starve. We need more like Dr cutler !
