VIDEO:Concerns Grow Over Public Sanitation in Haiti

[flv: 480 360]
PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti (WJRT) -- As food distribution in Haiti becomes a bit more organized, another danger is growing.

Relief officials say a lack of proper sanitation threatens to spread disease in the crowded refugee camps in the Capital, Port Au Prince.

With much of the country in ruins, those on the front lines say they're having trouble finding places to dig latrines.

American doctors in Haiti are criticizing the U.S. government for stopping medical evacuations to the U.S. Physicians say they don't have the proper equipment or time to save everyone.

The flights were halted Saturday morning in a dispute over payment for care.

The outpouring of Mid-Michigan support for the quake victims continues.

Manifest Productions teamed up Saturday with the Salvation Army in Flint Township.

The food and clothing donated at the drive will help local people in need while the money raised at the event will go to Haitian quake survivors.
