Rural Haiti seeks more than Port-au-Prince's crumbs in rebuilding efforts

The town of L'Estere in the Haitian hinterlands has a mostly unpaved main road, scant public services, a main hospital that closes on weekends and few jobs besides farming. The situation is typical of small towns in Haiti, where resources flow to the central government in Port-au-Prince and little if any return. The archaic relationship between the provinces and the capital will likely be another casualty of Jan. 12's devastating 7.0-magnitude earthquake.
