Haiti corruption and perpetual poverty

U.S. Gives Haiti Another $56.5 Mil in Humanitarian Relief after Billions in Aid Disappear

Despite well-documented fraud and waste in the U.S. government’s costly and ineffective Haiti recovery campaign, American taxpayer dollars keep flowing to the poverty-stricken Caribbean island with no oversight. This month the Biden administration revealed it is dedicating an additional $56.5 million to the failed initiative, explaining that the money is “for the people of Haiti in response to the country’s humanitarian crisis and cholera epidemic.” The announcement says Haiti’s alarming levels of gang violence have prevented people from accessing food, fuel water and other basic supplies but fails to reveal how this latest allocation will change that.
