Can anyone relate if there are or is any new Water storage facilities built since the earthquake?
What is the sewage system? I read that there actually was no plant before the quake?
It takes electricity to make possible the treatment of either one of these services. Is there any new electric production?
Thw world awaits solutions and it seems there is only concern about feeding the people. What good is it to spend a billion dollars to feed folks that will be dead unless services are functioning.

Clinton is supposed to be leading the effort to help these people! What the hell is he doing pimping for the election of more socialists in the U.S., when he should be forcing the issues in Haiti.
Obama takes credit for raising a billion dollars from our treasury almost a year ago and then the money is not spent rebuilding the country but feeding people on a daily basis. We cannot continue to cart in quart bottles of water and think that is a solution.
