Undistributed Food Going To Waste In Haiti, CNN Reports

At an orphanage in Haiti, children sleep on the floor, and their pantry contains only a few cans of beans left. Though the children smile as they sit through their daily classes, trouble is on the way.

CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who filed a report from this orphanage, was stunned to learn that there were nearby warehouses full of food and supplies that had not yet been distributed, some of it dating back to January. Nearly all of this food had been purchased in previous months by donor contributions.

He interviewed Eric Klein from Can-Do, an organization that provides relief to emergency populations. Klein was able to load a truck full of beans and other food from the warehouse and drive it just a few miles down the road to the orphanage.
