Haiti aid arrives amid looting…the Haitian people need our help now!!!

Foreign aid is beginning to reach Haiti amid fears over riots and looting after the devastating earthquake.

Patience was wearing thin, and reports of looting increased, as another day went by with no power and limited fresh water. Aid workers warned that unless they can get help to people quickly, Port-au-Prince will degenerate into lawlessness.

Machete-wielding looters brought more terror to Haiti streets as US troops poured into the quake-ravaged nation to start streaming tons of aid to traumatized and destitute people.[picapp align=”left” wrap=”true” link=”term=haiti+looters&iid=3331521″ src=”4/f/1/b/Haitian_President_JeanBertand_7bca.jpg?adImageId=9065108&imageId=3331521″ width=”234″ height=”145″ /]

Looting has become widespread and there were angry scuffles at the few aid distribution points.

Pray for better days for the people of Haiti.
