  1. Is there a website offering ways to donate/send food?

  2. What about Clinton Foundation? They stole 2 billions of $ from haitian eartquake relief program… and please do not donate money to US RedCross….

  3. The Clinton Foundation should be able to easily help Haiti the second time around since they pocketed the earthquake money…

  4. I don’t want to rain on the parade but, most aid doesn’t get there at all. After the last catastrophe, people and organizations pledged all kinds of aid yet the people of Haiti didn’t see most of it. Of the Aid groups, a lot claimed credit for the same aid, the Red Cross being one of the worst. Be careful which organization you donate to, DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE DONATING.

  5. At least one rich and famous person has stepoed up to help. God Bless Usain Bolt. He donated $10,000,000 & not to a charity but to the Haitian Gov.


  7. send in the red cross so they can fund like 1 billion dollars and only build 3 houses.

  8. Vi CB Vi CB says:

    So what’s the hold up? They were ready to have an election so maybe the politicians are too busy to deal with the people ????

  9. Vi CB Vi CB says:

    The true villains are the Haitian government. The rich Haitians care only about getting richer. They believe because they speak “French” and not patua that they are better. They live the high life while the poor suffer. The last thing you want to do is give money to the government ?

  10. Vi CB Vi CB says:

    Miami fire houses are collecting for Haiti.

  11. Denny Loe Denny Loe says:

    Knock on Hillary & Bill’s door and tell em to “hand it over”!!!!!

  12. Oh wait, all the money is going to war instead. Sick!!! I don’t feel like I belong to this planet 🙁

  13. Our governments have more than enough to help this ailing country!…

  14. The clinton foundation still has about 350 million that was donated from around the world after the devastating earthquake 7 years ago. The clintons should release that money to the Haitian’s where it rightfully belongs. The foundation did send approximately 150 million but are still holding a very large portion of the donations

  15. We can’t donate to the Red Cross or any of the other ‘charitable’ foundations or churches, so how do we help?

  16. They send billions to Israel annually…. so this should be a drop in the bucket hmmmmm

  17. It’s the UN that brought Cholera to Haiti and then denied it. Red Cross is a joke. People are having a hard time knowing to whom they should give where the funds will actually help the Haitians.

  18. DANITAS is a great organization to donate thru.

  19. Why did the UH come up with that number o a friend needs a 120 million

  20. Guess America didn’t do as much damage as what was said

  21. Reni Buhr Reni Buhr says:

    We are all one. When one is harmed all are harmed. When one is helped all are helped. Therefore in the name of who I am and I am one with All there is…Only the highest good for all concerned happens. I am thankful this is done…so be it and so it is. Please repeat this prayer for our brothers and sisters who are suffering

  22. Easy just get the Clintons to cough up a SMALL portion of the money they stole from the earthquake relief fund.

  23. Don’t ask the Clintons… Trump will probably assist though.

  24. Didn’t they do this last time Haiti got fucked up, they didn’t get a penny.

  25. Katty Lee Katty Lee says:

    America is in trouble..The Clintons and their crafty secrets and stash of money plus their hidden racism..and Trump a mad parasite on the loose….HEEEEELLLLPPP !!!!! America won’t give a dime or give a damn about Haiti…sad to say

  26. Katty Lee Katty Lee says:

    I mean the government not the people..The American people are kind true people it’s corrupt governments that rule..

  27. Get the money from the thieving Clinton Foundation!! Or the thieving Red Cross!! So sad for the Haitians. Greed has destroyed our world.

  28. And the aid will probably not come if the greedy Clintons get their hands on it.

  29. With America throwing away %70 of their food they finally have somewhere to send it,so let’s see what they do.

  30. Ive read Red Cross isn’t such a great place to put your aide. Might be worth researching before you throw money at Haiti…

  31. What? More money you need? Hasn’t the Clintons poured in so much from the their so called pay to play slush fund? Where is all the money going that was sent before? They are taking the money and doing something other than giving it to rebuild for the Haitian people and it is disgusting.

    • “Since 2006, SOIL has been transforming wastes into resources in Haiti. Through the use of ecological sanitation, SOIL is working to create a revolutionary social business model for providing access to safe, dignified sanitation that produces rich, organic compost as a natural resource for Haiti’s badly-depleted soils, while also creating economic opportunities in some of the world’s most under-resourced communities.”

  32. That’s easy for the fed! And reserves had already been in place!

  33. Praying for the people won’t achieve anything. direct action is required.

  34. See if the Clinton foundation can help again

  35. Looks like from what I read in the comment sections that a lot of ppl are waking up

  36. Judy Judy Judy Judy says:

    Red Cross built 8 houses over the last 10 years in Haiti. The Clinton’s took 95% of the money they collected in the name of Haiti. How do we help❗️how do we make sure they get what we send. God Love them.

  37. Can someone help me out here I keep hearing names like Sandie,Katrina now Mathew what’s the meaning of this names.

  38. The US would help but I think they gave a fuck load of ‘aid’ to Israel for some unknown reason…
