One year after Haiti earthquake: Rubble, recovery and reconstruction

Haitians are marking the one year anniversary of the 7.0 earthquake that devastated their country today.

While thousands of aid organizations and non-profit groups answered the call for help and the international community pledged billions of dollars to the recovery effort, progress on a large scale has been hard to come by in Haiti.

Rubble and damaged buildings are seen at every turn. Those images have some people wondering what is happening with the money that they donated to the cause.
