Sarah Palin pushes for aid during Haiti trip

December 13, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
Former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is wrapping up a goodwill visit to Haiti. Palin spent time at a shelter and an aid group's cholera clinics.

Haiti is still struggling to recover from the January earthquake and now faces post election violence and a fast-moving cholera outbreak.

More than 2,000 people have died and nearly 100,000 have gotten sick.

Palin urged everyone to continue to offer their support.

"Don't want Americans to forget the need that is here. More importantly, for Americans and people across the world, to know what an individual can do to make a difference, to contribute, to kind of get out of your comfort zone and volunteer to help," said Palin.

Palin also encouraged politicians to come and see conditions in Haiti firsthand.

She said perhaps then they would see the need for a military airlift to bring supplies to the nation.
