Both CORE and Mercy Corps have been working in Haiti since the massive earthquake in 2010. Lee says things are much better organized this time around.  

McKenna says Mercy Corps has been working to support the local Haitians for years, and that they help with lifting communities out of poverty, assisting small businesses and students. 

They also are helping locals interface with their government officials. In Depth airs Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. on FOX 11 and at noon on KCOP Channel 13.
