Six months ago today a massive earthquake hit Haiti, killing 230,000 people. Six months later Anderson and our team of reporters/producers back in Port-au-Prince tell us not much has changed.
"It still looks like a bomb just dropped on this city," said CNN's Ivan Watson.
Tonight, we're trying to find out why, after six months, life hasn't improved for the people of Haiti.
Today, Anderson asked former President Bill Clinton why more hasn't been accomplished on the ground. Don't miss the 360° exclusive interview. Clinton met separately today with Haitian President Rene Preval and Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive. Clinton, who is the U.N. Special Envoy for Haiti, partnered with former President George W. Bush to establish the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund to help quake victims.
You'll also hear from actor/activist Sean Penn, whose J/P Haitian Relief Organization is running one of Haiti's biggest refugee camps. The U.N. estimates 1.5 million people are still homeless in Haiti. That's roughly one in nine Haitians.
We'll also catch up with some of the people we first introduced you to six months ago. Back in January we showed you the rescue of a young girl named Bea. Tonight see how she's doing now. We also have an update on a little girl named Jenna, who was was at an orphanage when the quake hit. Since then she's moved to the U.S. to live with her adoptive mother.
Back here in the U.S., we continue to follow developments in the Gulf oil spill. This evening a new containment cap was placed on the broken well. BP hopes the cap will completely contain the oil spilling from the well. We'll have the latest from the Gulf.
See you at 10 pm. ET.
