Last week, I reported an incredibly sad story about a nursing home in Haiti that was destroyed.
Six residents were killed. Seventy-four survived, but they were living outdoors under the hot sun, on soiled mattresses. Many were wearing diapers that hadn't been changed; some people had no clothes on at all. They all had swarms of flies all over their faces and bodies. There was almost no food or water.
The nursing home director was there, but only one doctor made sporadic visits, and he had no medicine. Well, we paid a visit there this weekend, and I'm pleased to say that after our story, the International Red Cross and Haitian Red Cross set up a headquarters under a tent next to the seniors.
The volunteers will stay at the site, and have provided the seniors with food, water, medicine, and a huge tarp that gives them shelter in the rain. It is still a pitifully sad situation, but these old folks are no longer alone.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
