Earthquake in Haiti

Haiti is devastated by largest earthquake!
Today I heard a horrible news: In Haiti's worst slums, people are eating mud, earth cookies!
"With food prices rising, Haiti's poorest can't afford even a daily plate of rice, and some take desperate measures to fill their bellies. Charlene, 16 with a 1-month-old son, has come to rely on a traditional Haitian remedy for hunger pangs: cookies made of dried yellow dirt from the country's central plateau mixed with salt and vegetable shortening."
