I need to know why the haitian government does not appeal all the soldiers, senators and deputy etc.. to help the foreigh rescue teams save lives from the rubbles. Everybody should put hands together especially the people in Haiti because some victimes are still alive because haitian people are immuned to hunger and dehydration. Most of them believe in God's Miracle.
They have to check on all the towns and rural areas to search for survivors as well as Port- au- Prince and Jacmel also.May God bless all the Haiti supporters.

The first line of recovery in any disaster are the local people themselves.
The hatian gov are the type who are willing to oppress people and kill them. They are not the kind of people who are willing to actually do some work. So it's left to the normal Hatians and the foreign relief folks.
I've seen stories of locals who are organizing what are basically communes where everone is helping each other.
And I've seen stories of some Hatians who are resorting to violence and to the lowest common denominator.
I've heard of people who are trying to dig their friends and relatives out of collapsed buildings. But without heavy equiptment they cannot lift the concrete floors and walls of their buildings.
