Haiti's orphans still in crisis

Aid groups say orphanages are stretched thin and promised aid has not materialised.

     

    Six months after Haiti's devastating earthquake, many of those affected say they are seeing little benefit from the money pledged for reconstruction.

    The international community donated up to $10bn, but only a fraction of that money has been spent. Aid groups say if they don't get new funding soon, the future may be in jeopardy for tens of thousands of Haiti's orphans.
