The Forgotten Haitian City of Cite Soleil


The historic earthquake that hit Haiti on January 12th changed its capital city, Port-au-Prince, forever. And while the American military has secured its damaged port and streets, international aid organizations are providing medical and food supplies, and cargo planes fly in around the clock, one place really hasn’t changed, either before or after the earthquake — the forgotten city, Cite Soleil. VOA Bart Childs reports from Port-au-Prince.
