A Day of Mourning
Today marks one month since a powerful earthquake devastated Haiti.
The latest figures say more than 200,000 people died in the disaster.
This stories of grief from Haiti have obviously had a deep impact on Canadians.
International Co-operation Minister Bev Oda says donations from Canadians have reached a staggering $113 million dollars.
The federal government will match the final figure from all personal donations collected until today.
But the scope of the devastation, and the work ahead, is even more staggering.
One million Haitians are displaced.
About 500,000 of them are living in crowded and unsanitary make-shift camps.
Yesterday it rained in Port-au-prince disrupting relief efforts.
It was a glimpse of more misery ahead as the spring rainy season draws closer.
Aid organizations are trying to get quake survivors into more suitable accommodation before then.
The government of Haiti has declared today a national day of mourning.
CBC's David Gutnick will be on the show speaking to us from Port-au-Prince.
