Haitians sceptical of foreign aid

The divide between aid workers and quake victims is increasing in Port-au-Prince.



    Just an hour from Port-au-Prince, the contrast from the tent cities and food distribution lines could not be greater.

    From UN peacekeepers to the World Food Programme it may look like the high life, but for many it is a rare break from life in a disaster zone.

    On the streets of Haiti's capital, there is a perception that international aid workers inhabit a very different world from those they have come to help.

    The divide between aid workers and the people they are trying to help is increasing, and many Haitians feel the international aid effort is deciding their future for them.
