Tom Price and Nora Collins of Catholic Relief Services report on the rebuilding of Haiti in Port-au-Prince and beyond.

Tom Price and Nora Collins of Catholic Relief Services provide a report on reconstruction efforts underway in Haiti following the devastating earthquake in January and the work CRS is doing to aid in the country's recovery. Only 4 percent of earthquake rubble has been removed in 10 months, and large number of residents are still living in temporary tent cities. Tom Price also discusses his article for America, "The Other Haiti," which looks at the special challenges facing residents of the country's rural provinces.
