    I swear I think I just saw my colleague, Sarla Chand, being rescued from the rubble...Sarla is with IMA World Health. Anderson called her "Carla Shond" I think - just confirming that it was our Sarla....

    Is there documentation of how many orphanges and where they are in Haiti? Aid workers need to know this. There will be more children without parents...Haiti's orphanges will be an institution neccesary to the housing of these children. They need to be preserved and the children within them protected,

    Thank you, CNN, for bringing the events in Haiti to us. I have given to the Red Cross and to Doctors Without Borders. I only wish I had more to give. CNN is always there when catastrophic world events happen, and I am thankful we have you to turn to for indepth information. Anderson Cooper is back in his element, back to the field where he excels. His team is awesome. Dr. Gupta is so excellent. And I always appreciated Gary Tuchman, but he has so shined with his reporting from Haiti. He has shone most of all. All others I wish I could list. Thank you so much for professional, competent, and compassionate coverage. I am glad to be back to be a viewer of CNN. Prayer is not enough for the people of Haiti; I hope dollars come in by the millions. I will give what I am able.

    Hi Anderson I was in Haiti in 2008 @ Mission of Hope in Titanyen I was wondering if any news from there and also if they could be helpful in relief since they have a clinic at the Mission and are about a half and hour from PAP. . .please keep me informed if possible

    Please help – BRESMA orphanage – 150 children – they are in the yard as the buildling is falling down. Their water is contaminated and the children are crying because they are thirsty.

    Can anyone from CNN help?

    Is any way they could cremate the body of the dead so no virus will spread for this emergency?

    I have a feeling those credit card compaines will try to write off those waived fees as a "charitable donation" ...

    Facebook is reporting that there are 63 people trapped at the Carribean Market – one of the survivors sent out a text asking for help.

    I heard that the airplanes that could not land today, were diverted back to DR airport. As Anderson and others have reported, apparently Haiti's airport is too crowded and DR has more planes waiting until there is room in Haiti for them to land.

    Great report by Gary! I have to wonder how the woman in Gary's report was able to hold her composure for all that time. Gary was right, she did look beautiful.

    How long can someone survive buried with no food or water? I thought that after 3-4 days without water, that's about it.

    Anderson, you are so respectful and caring in your reporting....

    Please put up Canadian Organizations on your show that Canadians can donate towards!

    Take care and be safe

    Anderson Cooper, I believe a great many American's are concerned that donations and aid is going to end up in the few hands of extremely corrupt and greedy individuals, is there any accountability on the massive amounts of aid and funding going to Haiti?

    It's so sad that Haiti doesn't have rescue capabilities so they could get to people in the first 24 hours.
