Haiti – Broken Promises

It’s hard to believe that most of the promises of help and support that the world’s nations offered after the tragic earthquake in Haiti were never fulfilled. In January, and for a few weeks following the devastation there were offers and promises of all kinds of help. “We care,” said the world, and, “we will help. We Promise!!!!” Well this summer CNN checked out all those promises and discovered they were mostly empty.  For a report on CNN’s investigation, read catholic online’s recent post: Majority of the financial aid to Haiti never arrives

If you donated to the Haitian Emergency Relief campaign supported by Development and Peace, you have no need to worry about your money being used to provide help. Twenty Million dollars was collected from Catholics across Canada, and Development and Peace has provided continuous updates on how the funds have been, and are being used: Development and Peace Monthly Reports on Haiti.
