Haiti aid pledges still unfulfilled

Most vulnerable still plagued by illness and malnutrition six months after quake.

    When a powerful earthquake devastated Haiti, aid workers poured into the country, along with pledges of billions of dollars in funds to help rebuild the country.

    But six months on, Haitians are still waiting for much of that money to arrive, and the most vulnerable continue to be plagued by illness and malnutrition.
