My response to the N.G.O's who so-called come to help Haiti are all exploiters that use the plight and suffering of Haitians in their long struggle for justice to make money for themselves.

America and Europe is crawling with those NGOs. They are so-called there to help you, they claim, but your deplorable situation never gets better.

I was in Europe (Amsterdam) a few years ago when their was the big Earthquake In Haiti hanging out with friend Artist/Actor Colleague from Haiti "Aventurin" And we saw this watched this program on the national TV, where they, companies and the community at-large would call in and pledge money for Haiti, at the end of the program they had, "80.Million Euros" but Haiti never receive that money because it never left Amsterdam Holland.

I don't believe that The Medianet Haiti Relief Fund from Trinidad is on the banned list, but, can I prevail on you to send me a copy of the list.

I am also interested in any Haitian Government new Guidelines for NGOs.
