At about 11 AM, we will march from the Haitian Consulate to the United Nations.IT HAS BEEN SEVEN MONTHS since the earthquake devastated Ha?ti, yet 1.3 million people are still homeless living in tent cities with rats, no sanitation, no water, little or no food aid, no security and no refuge from the intense daily heat or the hurricane storms to come.
Despite an estimated $11 billion that was pledged by nations and charities to aid these victims, only 3% has been disbursed and there is no comprehensive plan to create housing, sanitation or a safe drinking water supply.**DETAILS ON THE DISCUSSION BOARD HERE: http://www.meetup.com/forumlakay/messages/boards/thread/9754110
