VIDEO: U.S. Haiti earthquake relief effort

by in Americas.

It has been almost four years since a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, killing an estimated 200,000 people and displacing more than a million. The U.S. government pledged $3.6 billion to Haitian relief and much of that money is distributed through the U.S. Agency for International Development, USAID. However, reports from the Center for Economic and Policy Research and the Government Accountability Office, Congress’ investigative unit, state that of the $1.15 billion that went to contractors in Haiti, little of that money and progress can be tracked.
