mudWhen one side of humanity suffers, we all suffer. Haiti is one part of the world 600 miles from the US, the wealthiest nation in the world, and it still suffers. Someone must HELP!

Worldfocus special correspondent Benno Schmidt and producer Ara Ayer report from Haiti, showing how far some people are going to fill their stomachs.
