UN Foundation visits rubble removal program in Haiti

The UN Foundation speaks with a UN Development Programme (UNDP) staffer about a United Nations rubble removal program in the Carrefour-Feuille neighborhood of Haiti. The program employs hundreds of thousands of Haitians to open up road access so that emergency crews and sanitation workers can reach areas of destruction before the rainy season starts.

UN Foundation CEO Kathy Calvin hosted AMERICAN IDOL winner Kris Allen in Haiti to learn what the UN needs to help the country recover and rebuild. Allen will appear on a special episode of American Idol on 2/25 to raise funds for the UN Foundation Fund for Haiti. Join our online AMERICAN IDOL watch party
