Collapsed buildings, homes and hospitals. Orphaned children, parents who’ve lost their children and elders who have no caretakers. Foreign sights, sounds and smells. This is Haiti. A disaster zone.

World Vision volunteer Laura Blank explains the scene in Haiti, food aid and why rushing in to adoption is a bad idea. She also answers one question that’s been plaguing journalists and citizens of countries who’ve been providing aid: where are the volunteers staying?

Haiti is in horrible condition, and as three generations of Haitians prepare to move into a massive tent city, we most not stop sending aid just because it’s being stalled. Rebuilding an entire country is not an overnight job, and our money IS helping. Let’s keep being generous, and let’s not forget about Haiti.
