Wondering whether you have reached out to any hobbyist or academic group which might be able to provide or provide funds for a weather-balloon based imaging platform.  In the absence of donated commercial satellite imaging, there are a significant number of hobbyist solutions for local aerial imaging using digital camera technology coupled with (unknown $$$) high altitude balloon technology.  My thinking is that this might be the best solution for most rural areas on the planet, not just Haiti.
