Haiti Is Still The Same Almost A Year Later
Jean-Max Bellerive the Prime Minister of Haiti has been frustrated and upset that the international community has not been allowing his country to play a more significant role in its own reconstruction from last January's earthquake. Because most of the aid and relief money for the disaster is from outside of the country, Bellerive is having a tough time controlling how funds are being allocated. The minister said that about 20% of the aid pledged had been received. The country is still far from being restored and has more than one million Haitians living in camps around the country. With NGOs controlling most of the outside money, there will continue to be a battle on the most effective way rebuild the nation.
