Brutally Honest Evaluation of International Private and Public Assistance to Haiti
October 25, 2010 Leave a comment
This report provides a fundamentally accurate analyses of the failures of private and public international assistance in Haiti. The recovery of this sad country will take years, if not decades, and external help is missing many of the fundamental keys to effective help.
There is a lot to see in this appraisal and many lessons that have not be learned by those who have tried to help in Haiti over decades.
Read this, but don’t expect to find a pretty picture.
Today, the hospital stands empty, its consulting and operating rooms abandoned, its beds unused, its scanners gathering dust, its two brand new ambulances sitting under tarpaulins in the yard. On April 1, owner Reynold Savain was forced to close CDTI because neither the Haitian nor U.S. governments, nor the United Nations, would agree to help pay his bills.
