Republic of NGOs
Ten billion dollars of wasted aid to Haiti might not sound like much of a scandal these days, but given the prominent role played by the Red Cross in this travesty, maybe it's time to rethink international disaster aid. With 10,000 NGOs on the ground in Haiti looking for handouts from international aid, little seems to be left for the actual victims of the earthquake disaster. As Toward Freedom reports, 350,000 displaced Haitians are still living under plastic bags, while ten billion dollars found a home elsewhere.
